The powerband on a 2.3 16 is in the upper rpm's. It sounds like you enjoy the "instant power" feeling that those rpm's would provide. You shouldn't hurt anything by running high rpms for extended time. Just make sure your shifting technique is correct. As for downshifting to slow down...that is what brakes were made for unless your in the mountains.
