Ya the line beside the 8 is red, but why does the shift light turn on at 7 grand?



You really dont need an 8000 rpm redline when you have more displacement, it would be nice but its not needed.

I believe the shift-lite is adjustable (RPM specific).

I believe I have seen this pic on the Japanese site --- I wouldn't take this redline as the default for the US model.

8,000rpms seems a bit high for a car that makes peak power at 6,000rpm's

Why would you make a redline at a point where if you shift into the next gear, you are already past the power peak! It makes no sense. I seriously doubt it will be that high

so the peak power comes on at the point as the WRX.... which would lead me to believe that the red line would be the same as the WRX.

If you look really, really close it looks like it's actually closer to 7250 or 7500. It all depends on which light you look at it in.

If anything, the best guess would be 8000rpm. The JDM STi hp peak is also at 6000rpm, and it redlines at 8000. True, this is a 2.5L, but it's as good a guess as any.

As for the tachometer picture... I expect that won't be the real one. The real one will probably be the black background/red characters version.

No, if you see it written as a spec item you might want to pay it some heed, but I definitely wouldn't take this picture as the redline definition.

I have already noticed a few "small things" about the pictures on the US site that might not be representative of what we get. Nothing major, just small details.

In fact most of the Pics are oldies from the facelifted STi when it was first shown for the Japanese/UK/Other markets.

I still see no need for such a high redline. If you make peek torque at 4,000rpm's and peak hp at 6,000rpm's, shifting at 8,000rpm's will slow your times down instead of shifting at 7,000rpm's (unless you are at the very end of the 1/4 mile and don't want to shift or you are in a SCCA solo 2 type course and want to wind out a bit more in a corner.

Anyway, it seems like a bit of overkill

Keep in mind that the optimal shift point as could be indicated by the light, has little to to with readline...

Ignore the light, they're talking about the red zone at 8000 RPM (look close). I think this is the JDM tach. I'm going to guess a redline of 7500. I could be wrong.

I'm with Glenn on this one. I suspect the redline is the same as the other new age STi's.. 7500 rpm.

Yeah that JDM redline looks like 8k to me too. If you find out the USDM redline please let us know.

What are you calling red line?

The paint on the guage?
The fuel cutoff?
