    Rev Limiter On 1998 V6 Mustang

    Does the 1998 3.8L V6 engine have a rev limiter? I know that the auto transmission shifts at 4500, and that the red starts at 5000, but the tachometer goes to 7000. I was wondering how high can you rev it to in first and second gear before it damages the engine? Thanks
