I am a noobie civic driver and i wanted to know how many rpm's should i be going up to for it to be safe for my car, and if i go over that how will it damage my car?
And i am purchasing a black widow 2 for my 92 Civic Hatch, is that a good choice or do you recomend something else?

well, you can't go past the fuel cutoff anyway....... what? 6800rpms in a d-series? if you did go past that number, your bottom end could lose it's balance due to high rotating speed, and you will probably experience valve float and other fun engine breaking events.

ricers get bodykits..... now make your decision

dont go beyond your cars indicated redline. rpm=ruins peoples motors. the higher the rpm, the more stress you put on all the components. depending on which d series you have, the redline is somewhere between 6,000 and 7200.

ricers dont all get bodykits :roll: rice is an attitude, not a mod. there are several very tasteful and good looking body kits out there. dont make blanket statements like "ricers get bodykits", if he wants a body kit, its his car, he can do whatever he pleases with it, as distasteful as you or i may find it.

Well , I got a EX/Vtec/TURBO motor, and I redline at 8500 rpm, MUGEN GSR ECU. Nothing wrong with the motor yet. MY boy DX/VTEC redline at 8500 same setup. ALLstock internal. 2 years of fuckin trying to blow his motor. You'll be fine. NO BODY KIT.. GO JDM FOR YOUR RIDE

heres the link to the thread http://www.clubcivic.com/board/viewtopic.php?p=11713&highlight=#11713

and just because you got away with running too much rpm for your motor doesnt make it a good idea. the r/s ratio of a d16 is about that of an ls motor, and neither the bottom end nor the valvetrain is meant to rev to 8500 rpm. when you push an engine outside the parameters in which it was originally built to run, stuff starts breaking. sooner or later yours, or your buddies engine are going to break.

lol i have a D15B7 and its got 144,000 miles on it and when i "street race" i go up to about 62, 6400 rpm, but on normal driving i only go to about 4500, and im sure one day it will blow, but you know what they say, when something breaks, its just more reason to make a more powerful, more modded engine =)

they made the vx from 92-95, and the hx, a simiar motor from 96-00. and yes it is a d, i believe the d15b5? not too sure, but i know that it is a d series.
