This is going to sound bad but here goes nothing. When I floor the gas pedal I am hitting about 5800-5900 Rpms... I let off the gas to shift. If I didn't it would probably redline is this common? I have the 05 ext

If u stay in it it should shift, if it goes against the rev limiter you my friend have a problem

I have done that before and as long as the rev limiter doesn't kick in(which it will) then don't worry
I have done it more then once so I wouldn't worry

So what do I do when it hits the rev limiter? Because you said it will hit it.

If it in park and you do then the rev limiter will kick in but if it is in gear then the speed limiter would kick in at a certain speed
I have yet to hit either

I have hit 5900rpm in mine as well. nothing to worry about unless it does not shift after that. JMO.

These stock lq9 engines are safe on stock internals to 6200rpm. U won't hit that anyway unless ur tuned and raise the limit
