Default Re: full throttle?

WOT throttle and high rpm operation will naturally increase wear. Will it be noticeable, probably not for most of us. Friction is directly proportional to the square of piston velocity. If you normally cruise at 3000 rpm, and then take engine up to 6000 rpm, there is 4 times more friction at 6,000 rpm than at 3000 rpm.
