Redline for my truck

I have a 98 Mazda B2500 with a 2.5 liter I4 and I was wondering what the redline might be. I can't find out anywhere what it is, and I am afraid to take it past 4000 rpms.

If you have a tachometer the gauge should have a red line on it, hence the term "redline" that tells you when to stop. OR a rev limiter will cut you off. But in a 4 cyl im 100% positive your redline is higher than 4000.

Couldnt find the redline anywhere, but the peak power is made at 5000. Im guessing its around 5500.

if tach goes up to 6000 - expect a redline from 5000-5500...

...So floor a standard transmission car, and wait for it to shift by itself?

Last time I checked, the 1998 Mazda B2800 Manual had to have the driver shift for it
