Hey guys just bought bc valvetrain and cams. Realistically what is the max redline it can go up to? I've heard 7800 but I wanted more info. Couldn't find any information on BC website.

There is no need for a higher red line without a built engine and larger turbo. If your turbo can't produce more power into the higher revs, you're not getting any benefit from running it higher.

For a stock oem ej205 you can spin it up to 7.2K if your oiling system and oil is in top condition.

You can spin it to 10k if your oil system is up to par, but there is no point if your turbo can't produce power.

It'll be cheaper to get a v8-v9 EJ207, which will rev's to 8.2K, has big ports heads, big cams, avcs, and it's a complete OEM package designed to spin and make power.

Great info. Soon going to run a hta71 after my break in period. Hopefully this turbo has some kick up top.

Default ej205 Redline??

you will want upgraded oiling past 7.5K rpm. but it can handle alot more if your motor is built for it.

outfront motorsports does closed deck 2.0L... worth looking into if you want to get crazy.
