Installing a tach got me to wondering......what's the redline rpm on this motor?

Edit to say: I did a search and someone said it's 6800rpm. Is this accurate?

the CA18de has a fuel cut at 7200rpm

Cool, thanks.
Yeah, I drove this thing out, fully loaded with all my worldly possessions, from Central Fl to LV,NV and the engine blew when I pulled into town. So I got this local import garage to take it and they got me a motor from Japan that had 48K original miles (apparently Japan's smog solution is that when the motor get's 30k miles, they have to replace it with a new motor, so American import shops buys these motors and we reap!! Btw, anybody want a good original motor , PM me, I'll hook ya up)). Anyway, So, 6800rpm is good. That's cool, 'cause goin' thru the gears, I'd have to really get on it to get up around 6k rpm.

Thanks guys.

does your factory tach cease to work?

That's a rhetorical question, right? 'cause my car didn't come with a factory tach, but I'd say it ceases to work when the motor does, which is what I'm trying to avoid.
