Will accidentally shifting to an inappropriately low gear damage something? This can occasionally happen when I'm on the 5th gear, slow down to negotiate a turn, and want to shift to 3rd gear while inattentively shifting to 1st gear.
What part of the engine will be damaged by this move? Rods, main bearing, transmission, or anything else?
How to prevent this kind of overspeed?
By the way, I'm talking about a stock 4G63T with some insignificant bolt-ons, such as aftermarket intercooler, various gaskets, and head studs.

Its not quite as bad as say a 1-2-1 shift persay when racing but you should still avoid it altogether. From my experience the valves will hit the pistons and all hell breaks loose as you can imagine. I had just turbod my honda and installed a b&m short shifter, wasn't use to the new feel of it, and did a pull. Wot in first snatched second bout 6500rpms snatched what I thought was third dumped the clutch and bout went through the front window as my motor went well into the rpm range of a crotch rocket. When I tore it apart it had broken 2 valves bent 3 more and had a nasty hole in a piston and another was beat to crap as well.
the only use for those, would be to tape them all together forming a long rod, place said rod into a steady base, place contraption onto floor, pull down pants, and sit on them
It has nothing to do with haters. Your car looked fine, but then you go and make it look like *** and ask everybody what they think. http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=hater
