was going from 6 to 4, but went in to 2nd instead for about 1s and it was around 7500RPM

disengaged the clutch after 1s..

No CEL no burning smell nothing....

How worried should I be? Engin still running fine. no noise or weird stuff

I am ready to rebuilt the engine and get a bunch of aftermarket performance parts in now...

I would not worry too much. You will destroy a clutch before the motor at that RPM. You would know if that happened.

right now the clutch still feels fine, the engage point is the same, still shifts and goes in to gear properly

should I be worry about the rod and valve train?

I still have an issue with around 3,000 miles my gears wanting to go back into 3rd rather than 5th from 4th. I'm really having to pay attention and move it more to the right. Maybe I'm shifting too early and it's thinking I want to downshift? Anyone else having this issue?

In reference to the above post,
I didn’t read it anywhere but from experience with other manuals
There is a “right pressure” effort necessary for up shifts to fifth and sixth.
Up shifts from one to four should be effortless.Forth to third should be possible with one finger as well as third to fourth
Third to second obviously requires a little left pressure or you are back in forth.
To the OP
I don’t think you hurt your car
I’ve accidentally over revved many a car,truck and motorcycle for a split second
If these engines can stand the HP increase of the various tuning applications hitting 7500 for a second didn’t do anything

With an upgraded cam, these cars can do 7,000 RPM and still make power. I think you're fine at 7500 for a second. If any damage was done, it would be very noticeable. Just be more careful next time.

They don't seem to suffer damage until north of 8000, but don't take that to mean you are good until 7900. I generally keep it at or below 7000.

I can't hear it. Message says "This video is private". How did it sound at the moment you shifted?
Besides, the original post is from three years ago. Any damage would likely have surfaced by now.

I think you will need to change the engine mate, I am not a professional mechanic, but I think that your engine is dead.
