There's a reason why your vehicle has a rev limiter. I wouldn't suggest removing it as it would be easy to damage/destroy engine internals doing this. It is possible to do but messing with the factory ECU in any way could cause Subaru to deny a warranty claim if you were to have any issues in the future.

... what?

The fuel cutoff (rev limiter) is at a higher rpm than redline....

Is there anyway to remove the rev limiter
Yes.

so it can rev all the way to redline?
It already does.

If so, will this void my warranty?
I would certainly hope so.

I'm still unclear what you'd like to do though, because the car can redline as-is, right now. If you cannot reach redline there is something likely wrong with your particular car, and if you post the symptoms maybe someone can help you?

Sorry forget tot mention. I have a 2016 WRX Limited and when I have an aftermarket exhaust and when i am sitting in park I would like to be able to redline to 6700 rpms (which is redline on my engine). I would like to hear the engine rev up and I'm curious if it takes a Cobb tune or anything like that.

Do you have a CVT? Is that what this is about?

Free revving the engine in park or neutral is bad for it and could potentially damage the valves.. I just wouldn't.

Plus you look like a douche.
