let's say you are in 4th manual and you step on the gas. uh oh! just notice i'm at red line. does the car shift to 5th manual or does the engine blow?

i can't remember if the dealer said it will shift for you or not.

The engine computer will not allow the engine to spin past the redline. So if you're in 4th and step on the gas, it (depending on your speed) may downshift and upshift to 4th, then top out at redline. You'll probably notice the rev limiter step in and cut the gas.

Try it sometime.. won't hurt much to find out.
