Question WRX engine redline?

I read on Subaru's website that the redline for the 2001 WRX engine is 9000rpm, but I've seen photographs of the tachometer and the red zone clearly begins at around 7000rpm. Can someone tell me the real rev limit on this car?

The 9000rpm, I believe is the figure for an STi engine. We're pretty sure to be limited to around 7000rpm

but, according to SCC, we have the same valvetrain as the Japanese spec WRX.. which means, we can bump our redline by 500. Dunnno what that means.. check the mag to see fer urself.

we also don't run as high octane gas and have more strict emissions. they probably limited it for these reasons. Besides, anyone w/ a WRX should be happy that they get 7000... w/ RS's we only get 6250...
