You are going to have to give us ALLOT more info. How fast were you going? What gear did you misshift into? What MY is your car?

To answer your question though. VERY bad things can happen!

I miss-shifted from 2nd gear to 1st gear ( it was supposed to go to 3rd ). On 2nd gear I was already at almost 8,000 rpm on a 2004. I was reading the other posts and I didnt really understand the bent valves, etc. How do I know if there's something wrong? The car seems fine and it happened about a week and a half ago. I don't notice any changes. Should I get it checked up just in case? Any advice? When I downshift to slow down a bit, sometimes I smell gasoline, could this be a side effect? Or is this a whole new problem?

You may have floated the valves and cracked a valve spring retainer. This is a documented side effect on AP1 engines that were over revved like that. The crack does not manifest itself for a while..weeks or months, then Boom! Valve drops into the head and new motor time. I don't know if this is a problem in AP2's but it would be very wise to have or do an inspection.
Do a search on S2kI and all around for more info.

you must have really slammed the shifter to get it into first from 2nd at 8K rpm.
