well i have run stock motors except for the valve srings and cam, and arp rod bolts. i have used the oem cast pistons and have run the engines as high as 7200 rpms but dont advise it. it gets to be too hard on the cast pistons and i have lost engines this way. if you have cast pistons i would limit rm to 6200-6600, my problem going higher was the wrist pins pulling out of the piston on the cast ones and when that happens it pretty much destroys the whole engine.
