Do a search for more info on this topic, it's been covered to death in this forum.

Keep the RPMs below 6k, and you should be OK at LRP....although I would run an extra quart of oil in the pan. Turn 1 is a long drive around under high load.....

And the good news is you probably won't catch air going up the hill like many race cars. That's a zinger to the engine and driveline.
