There's a rev limiter that prevents the engine from exceeding max rpms. Max rpms will not damage the engine, especially for short periods of time. Do not be afraid of high rpms. Embrace it :)

I believe you are misinterpreting H3br3wHamm3r81's response. The point is that the thing that I asked to be explained cannot be explained, because it's not true.

Please explain how this could be possible. How could you start off with a performance gain, but then the computer "adapt" and get rid of the performance gain?
