With a stock 350 motor and heads, what is the maximum RPMs you should shoot for? 6000? 5500? 6500?

If your looking for longevity I would stick with 5500 max!

that is kind of a loaded question stock do you mean that it has a hydraulic cam?
if so than 6000 is alot but if you have a solid lifter cam than 7000 isn't out of the question but i wouldn't do 7000 on a motor that has alot of miles on it (old junker) unless your in for the smoke and rattle show

drive hard or drive home

The motor has stock valves, hydraulic cam. I'm trying to figure out what I have to do if I want to turn more RPM without damaging the motor right off the bat.
