The redline is 7700 rpm. I think the driveshaft will bolt right up but I am not 100% sure as I myself have not doen this swwap.

i know on supras the driveshafts on the automatics are shorter than that of the manuals. so you might want to measure your driveshaft and then measure a manual driveshaft to make sure they are the same size and keep the downtime due to driveshaft purchase to a mininum. but this is just a thought.

what kind of RPMs are you guys taking your sr20's to? in the honda world some of my friends are taking their ls-vtecs to 10500 rpm. these are fully built and ballenced ofcourse. what could i expect with a sr20?

If you want to spin that motor on a concentrated basis past its redline, it would be wise to consult with the SR20 gurus on this forum about purchasing those kits that will prevent the broken A arms in your valve train. I know people who've snapped them and it's not pretty.
