I'm guessing you have a 5-speed.

40 in second is a bit high (can't remember the exact RPM this morning, but 30 is at 3000 RPM), but still below red line. Same for 50 in third.

It shouldn't hurt the car, just make more engine noise and use a bit more gas.

I have a 5 spd and need to get a tach in it for that reason. I never know what RPMs I'm doing and I don't wanna blow my engine or anything.
swapping a factory tach cluster in is really easy. you can use the same speedometer section so you don't have any mileage discrepancy.

Yeah. I read up on how to do that here and I have the thread on it bookmarked so that when I get the money and find the tach in a JY or such I can go ahead and make the switch. The only problem is that I am away at school so I don't know where a lot of things are around here. Do you know of anywhere online I could get the factory cluster w/ tach?

you could put a WTB ad in the classifieds here.
