I'm gonna call BS on this one as well.

NO WAY you got a 2.8L M52 motor to spin to 8000 RPM. The stock 2.8L motor runs out of breath about 6200 RPM; I highly doubt you can get another 1800 RPM out of it.

You *might* get to 7,000 RPM with that motor, but not beyond it.

Just how did you know you're running 8,000 RPM with that car?
