Am I right to assume that there is not much point in going over 7,400 RPM? IIRC for any power up their you need to do the custom intake and the independent throttle body changes. Even with that the top end (the Cams, valves, and porting) does not really push our power band up into those revs right?

Guess I can always pull the pump at a later date if I want to and install the gears I suppose.
