Does anyone know where the redline is in the BA XR6 N/A Manual? It sure as hell isn't on the dials but I'm wondering what the actual redline is? The owners manual says that the auto upshifts at 5800rpm but I can't see a reference for the manual. Any ideas?

OK, here it is. Max power in theBarra 182 is produced at 5000rpm and maximum torque occurs at 3250rpm. People that I spoke too at my dealership assure me 6000rpm will not damage the engine with occassional use.
My XR8 seems to cutout at 5800 or thereabouts, and haven't encountered the alleged "variable cutout". Someone posted in an earlier thread that the engine won't rev past 4000rpm in neutral, but haven't bothered to try it myself...
