Ha ha ha if they couldn't they wouldn't have made them. Engines are not like people they can't get tired. You could drive them to the moon and back non stop, as long as they have oil and water in them.

I just completed a 722 mile trip, at 4500 RPM. With a 4-speed. And that was with a 1972 Datsun engine, never been opened up. These things are tough. The rings are the part that get tired. But since your's is an Overhead Cam it should be able to handle revs better than mine.
