    Even if the rev limiter would be removed, the engine would not rev much higher. But yes, also the piston speeds get high so that rev limiter should be set reasonable also for the longevity reason.

    8.5k would be a nice +18% on 7200rpm. However, the head does not flow enough for the stroke and it will choke before 8k. The power can increase until the flow exceeds sonic speeds when the power...

    The intake valves don't flow enough to enable high revs. There is a very limited space for both increasing the lift and/or intake valve diameter. The bore is small for fitting big valves to the area...

    You cannot just compare 3" vs 3.5" straight pipes if you are running mufflers. A 3.5 inch muffler flows a lot better than the 3" muffler of the same brand. That's why in the real world comparison...

    The no-rattle solution would be 335is / 550i / 650i clutch.
