Redline then CEL?? help

I was just getting onto the freeway when i punched it from second. I took it to redline (maybe a tad below) and i shifted to third and then to 4th and 5th sequentially and quickly. I know i didnt misshift. As soon as all that happened my CEL light came on. I pulled over and looked inside the engine bay. nothing seemed out of place or anything. I turned the car off for a minute and turned it back on and its still on.

What could all this mean? Anyone had this happen to them?

Thanks alot!

Brad

Re: Redline then CEL?? help

happens to me every single time i hit vtec.. i throw a egr code.. so my theory is the sensors really notice the clogged egr at higher rpm's when the air flow through it really gets restricted.
