    Are you revving it in neutral? If so its normal not to redline. The ECU is designed to protect the engine from damage when the driver accidentally floors the gas pedal in neutral.

    you can still redline with partial throttle if the floormate is in the way. it has to be electronic.

    It sounds like you're describing that you can't hit full boost (which you won't in 1st or 2nd grear).

    What exactly do you mean about not hitting redline? The car gets up to like 5k and then flatlines there? It hits 6k and then stutters? Does the car buck?

    I mean it won't go over 6500rpm in 1st 2dn gear. Yes it kind of stutters there. Yes it bucks a little.

    6500 RPM is the redline for the 2009+ WRX. 6700 RPM is the fuel cutoff. I'd stay of the rev limiter unless you want to destroy your engine.

    I thought it is 6500rpm.

    I guess you saw 3000 9000, those are miles.

    you first claimed that your car won't redline and it tops out at 6500 RPM. Then you say you thought the redline was 6500 rpm. Why even ask the question? Admit it, you saw the tach go up to 9000 RPM and thought that was the rev limit
