Wow! I was hoping to generate some discussion about this (S2000's) engines high rpm range and potential engine life and I got more of a response than I expected! For my part, I think over the next couple of years this question will be asnswered on the street. My bias is that the engine is going to have some problems. I read the posts about air cushions in the cylinders or whatever but these engines are so much more complex than that. A break down exploits the weakest link in a chain. Meaning, all of the little parts that go into keeping an engine at 9000 rpm will be working that much harder. If the engine holds up than kudos to Honda. I have 2 more years left on my M3 and if I'm wrong than I'll be test driving a Honda.
