Default How high do you rev your engine?

The question in detail is when you drive your car hard what RPM do you guys shift at? Does not matter what motor you have SOHC, DOHC, turbo whatever. When I push it in my car I sing that twin cam to 7000 RPM from 1st to 2nd then again from 2nd to 3rd. I dont do it often, in my old GSi I did that quite alot since I had it when I was younger. I trust these motors can take some beating.

I usually shift mine at 5k RPM but I have been driving standards for a very long time so its just natural to shift for me, you have to listen to the motor, and feel the car..
