over reving

How high can you rev a 6.0 before you have problems. Or how high have people seen recorded on their cts's. I'm just wondering because I was in a hurry sunday night in the rain and I broke the tires loose for a couple seconds and afterwards in the records page on my cts it said I hit 4580 rpm's my tunes usually shift at 3800-4000 at wot. On occasion I have seen 4200 recorded but nothing that high.

It happened so fast I didnt even notice the tach go that high but it must have for a split second. I was more worried about getting to my father's shop since half the roof was laying in the road.

When I had my head gaskets redone since they used black onyx the first time I had a couple valves that grazed my pistons not enough to even hurt the valves just see a faint mark on the piston from what they said was an overrev and I don't want that to happen again. Heads were in spec according to the machine shop but the first time they did them they were warped and took exactly 8 thousandsths off which I have heard is the max. I wish they would have told me before they put it together because I would have bought new heads instead of machining them that close.
