4500 RPM accident

So my buddy has a 6.0 with studs and an SCT tuner. He calls me up the other day freaking out. Apparenly his kid ended up gettin in his idling truck in the driveway and buryed the pedal. He said he hit it twice before he could get to the truck, each time no more than maybe half a second, but he knows the second time he hit 4500 rpm right as he was pullin him out of the drivers seat. Thats when his truck bogged down then killed. It still runs fine but he is paranoid he did serious damage. Thier are no check engine lights either. I told him it was probly just the defuel from high rpms since he never messed with the rpm limiter on his SCT. Any other suggestions?

I think the best part about it was when he was chewing out his son for doing that, his sons reply was "I wanted to blow smoke like you dad"..... Atleast hes sorta raisin him right hahahaha

Hahaha that's awesome that his just wanted to be like his dad. I doubt any damage was done, my truck had turned 4500 on accident before and it hasn't showed any signs of damage. Probably just died cause it defueled. I know my truck has died after doing a 90+mph brakestand before but fired right back up afterwards.

ya his did too, I went over to his place to check it out... doesnt have a knock or anything. I figured it woulda spun bearings if it was gonna do any damage, and that would be very noticable haha...... he was just worried cuz he did it twice, I dont blame him I guess ha

There is a rev limiter, that shouldn't allow the truck to rev to a point of damage.


I've held gasser at the rev limiter in neutral for a few seconds at a time (never buy a car that was owned by a rental place ) Never seemed to do any damage to them.



On edit - I'd be tanning his hide, and then laughing my azz off.......... "I just wanted to blow some smoke" funny stuff,.. kids

Rev limiter - engine begins to defuel at 4000 rpm.
As others said, your buddy should be fine.

Man isn't that true.... I will be the party pooper and say this... leaving your kid in a started vehicle is JUST a bit

Imagine if he would have got it out of park and into gear or reverse could have killed someone!!!



I KNOW that stuff happens sometimes and i'm usually not the guy to say the above, but I just hope that the father gets a lesson out of this too as Boys will be boys and an azz whooping might not prevent his kid from doing it again in a month


Be careful and smart out there guys

Ok


I'm not judging him, just stating that hopefully it was a little lesson for him too...I'm just brainstorming as I have a little one and It can happen to anyone if not prepared for and thought through all the possibilities

I wouldn't worry, I used to have a 4550 rev limiter and banged it off that plenty of times showin off like an A$$! Now i've smartened up and put it back to 4050. But they sure do sound good at that rpm on the street.
