I was doing some math here, if you're on the stock 225/50/16 tires, have a 3.91 diff, and are reading 220km/h off the stock speedometer, then you're more then likely doing like 205km/h or so (7% error on the stock speedo, when I govern at 206km/h my speedo almost reads 220kmh), then you should be at like 6750rpm @ the true 205km/h, and 7250rpm @ 220km/h.

I'm with Pat on this one, to just get to 7400rpm you need some decent valvetrain strengthening (springs.....etc).
"Driving is like a narcotic, an addiction that can take over lives. It ruins people, breaks families apart, and even kills. It’s habit that needs to be fueled. Time, money, rationality, sweat, knuckle skin, and anyone who disapproves are of little importance to a driver, and are often overlooked. Hi, I’m Nelson, and I’m a drivaholic."
