Default so how much damage did i do to my engine this time?

i was on my way home and it was 3 in the morning. and decided i wanted to get home before breakfast. so i decided to do 100-110 all the way home from san fransico. this translates into driving for 3.5 hours @ 4k rpm. is it bad to have it be revving that high for that long?

and if you have a comment on how fast i was going i dont care to hear it. there was basically no traffic except for trucks in the slow lane.

4k doesn't really count as high revving.

You were only at 4k at 110??

well 110 was about 5k because i had to be on the gas a fair amount to keep it there. 100 wasnt too bad on the throttle. its a 4speed btw so the gears are different than you normal people with manuals

Assuming your oil is in good condition, you should be fine. That is why many airplanes use Subaru engines, they are happy to sit at a decent rpm level for extended periods of time...well built, and the its the nature of a balanced, boxer design.

As far as your speed, be careful. Regardless of weather you want to hear it, you still need to...you are not the only one on the road.

yes im bragging about a 140hp 4eat impreza L....im just wondering if this does any harm to the engine. if i hadnt explained why i had the rpm so high someone would have said "why didnt you upshift". the car seems fine. although ive only driven to taco bell and back since then.
