Default Piggy-back way to raise rev-limit?

I know this has been mentioned before. But I figured with all the tuning attention the WRX is getting something may have come out that would work on the RS. I really need a 7000 rpm limit.

I am looking for an under $500 solution that is why I said piggy-back. I know it can be done with a ECU but, is there any other way? Like an ignition controller or just some kind of diy resistor??

Yes there are 2 ways of tackling the "bumping" up of the Rev Limit.

1) Wait for the newer version of the TC2 which will have capabilities to up the rev limit.

2) PM me or email me for more details

Do you have any mods that would allow you to run a higher rev limit? The rev limit is not just a number someone made up to keep you from driving the car the way you want to. If you remove or raise the rev limiter there is a possiblity you could get into valve float, which will end up killing your motor. The subaru motor is not a Honda. It takes special parts to make a car rev high. Cobb Tuning sells increased rate valve springs, which is a start. I would make sure you know what you are doing before you go cutting any wires or anything like that.

jeffg - I spoke w/ Trey about this matter.. he told me himself that the stock engine/valvetrains are good up to about 7200rpm... so if you bump it to 7000rpm for fuel cut, it should be fine. As well, for turbo'd cars, if it's tuned right, should rev about 500rpms more to achieve max power in all gears.

mated with the DOHC, bumping up the revs will provide more speed in 2nd gear for the auto-x'ers
