I cannot stop taking the engine into the second cam. I never thought it can be so addicting.

My gas milage is definitely hurting, but I don't care about that, I am more concern about any potential long term wear and tear issues.

It wont "damage" your engine but it is putting more constant stress on it so it will essentially shorten its life span.

I wouldnt worry about the lifespan tho. This engine was made to rev. Ive had mine for 110k miles and not had a single problem ever. And any time I can take it to redline I do so. I love it to death. Keep up with maintenance and you should be fine.

+ get an aftermarket exhaust like arqray or stage II and you will be on the second all the time.
