Basically the Subaru boxer dohc EJ-25 appears to have a really peaky power curve. I would say for ultimate performance, you are best off keeping the engine in a rather narrow powerband... My 'seat of the pants' experiance is 4,800 to 6,500 rpm the car seems to pull the strongest. I dont have any specific information to back that up, though.

I generally try not to exceed 6,500 RPM. Is there much advantage to exceeding the red line ? I think some Imprezas are actually redlined at 7,000 RPM...
