It has been shown for sure bumping the rev limiter reduces engine life - perhaps from 500,000 miles of a well cared for engine down to a 200,000 "run the dog sh_t out of it" engine care. I always try very hard NOT to bump the rev limiter before shifting.... but it's hard not to bump it sometimes off the line in 1st gear.

Oh well - I don't do it very often, just enough to keep the "grin factor" alive.
