Hi, I just want to know if there would be any effect to a cars engine when it is been raced in one place (idle)? I got to know that if I race my engine to about 5000rpm in neutral or idle that I can blow my own gasket. Is it true?

thanks in advance
Ian

You can grenade the whole engine doing that. I'm really surprised that the computer doesn't have a rev limiter to prevent you from doing that.

Anytime you rev an engine while its not under load to those rpms is a recipe for disaster! As for it causing a head gasket to blow? Not likely. Unless you overheat it. Just out of curiousity, why are you racing the rpms in neutral? New exaust and it sounds cool?
