Rev Limit on 96 WRX STI

Hi there,

FYI: just a general question....

I have been looking on ebay for white clocks and have noticed that my rev limit is higher than every single set of clocks I've seen for sale.?? (See Pic) My limit supposedly goes into the red at 7900 rpm and the ones i have seen for sale start going into the red at like 7000 rpm...just wondering if anyone knew why this is ??

Many thanks
Luke

Don't know why they are like that. But I wouldn't be going anywhere near either of rpms. Change no higher than 6k as your boost is trailing off anyway and imprezas don't like being revved like that anyway. It just pointless
