Max Redline on SVT

What is the max Redline the SVT motor can Handle???...I recently changed my rev limiter in my SVT to 8600 RPM's...I can now do 115 mph in 3rd gear but is that to much stress for the motor or can it handle it???

Stock limiter is 7200 and the oil pump gears fail at anything over 7600.
