20,000 is like the limit, Formula 1 type engine-speed. What do you propose to drive this with - a gas-turbine?

I would suspect you would overheat the bearings and cause some sort of failure if you run it at that speed for any real amount of time.

well if it is a high performance one you might get away with it for a few seconds but a standard one I think it will most likely damage it

Why would you be running your engine at 20,000 rpm? The motor would probably give out before the alternator does.
