If you rev your engine to high RPM on occasion and only keep it there for brief periods of time, generally this is not going to cause much damage to the engine.
High RPM causes more wear on the engine components than lower revs.
Every engine has a point where it will come apart internally at a certain speed..
When should a brand new car get its first oil change 2019?

What oil should I use to break in a new engine?
Use a 5w-30 or 10w-30 motor oil with an engine break-in additive (ZDDP or zinc camshaft additive), especially with flat tappet camshafts.
How long do you leave break in oil in engine?
In general, run the engine under light-to-moderate loads for about 500 miles. Again, that duration is a rule of thumb, but break in shouldn’t exceed 1,000 miles. Then, drain the break-in oil, install the synthetic oil of your choice and commence driving.
Is it OK to mix different brands of synthetic motor oil?
Yes, you can safely mix one brand of oil (e.g. Mobil 1) with a different brand (e.g. AMSOIL) or conventional oil with synthetic oil (in fact, that’s what a synthetic blend is). Most synthetics today are fully compatible with conventional oils and can safely be mixed.
How long should you break in a new engine?
