Has anyone climbed to a really high altitude and tried to see what happens when you over rev an engine over time.

Will it cause engine damage?

I have often over reved an engine during a dive, but was never sustained. Just wondering of over reving the engine actually has any side affects ?

start a qmb at high altitude with cr42 or g50. Dive full speed and see.

Just try using manual pitch in a Bf 109. If you get more than two minutes out of the engine the first attempt, you did better than I did.
