Yes. But that would not take RPMs too far past fuel shut off.
Think just the momentum of moving parts at somewhat higher RPM could pull engine apart like that?
Flywheel bolts snapped when engine seized suddenly.
EDIT: What's top speed in 5th at redline?
About 150 mph... I definitely wouldn't be wanting to shift to 4th instead of 6th.
There is a member Leezamonkey with an in-car track video showing a mis shift which threw him completely sideways, and that was without him even releasing the clutch as he realised the mis shift immediately...and under some duress I must add !
Sound like a car that was just abused and not taken care of at all..a good lesson here..Cosmetics are all well and good, but if you want the car to live long, you must pay attention to the mechanical maintenance as well..Great CSI work guys.
