How high is the stock rev limiter?

Hey guys,

Well this may a dumb question but, how high is the stock rev limiter at? I ask because i was curious on how high it can go and it went up to ~7500 in first gear and in neutral. I know redline on the guage starts at 7000, but can it over rev that much?? I just bought the car pre-owned at the dealer and now wondering if its bone stock or is it already flashed by someone else? I plan to go to the dealer tomorrow to get the latest flash and im thinkin if i got a custom reflash already then screw it. Reason why i wanted the latest reflash from is cause i was experiencing stuttering in high rpm's, weird idle etc and figured id bring it in. But tonight i floored it and it seems fine, no stutterings and not to much weird idle (itll only bounce slightly once in awhile).. any clue?

Thanks!

Edit: If you got this far, sorry for the long read! Im a noob

Thanks guys. One last question, is it bad to rev pass 7k? Where the redline starts? Or is it ok to shift around 7500 on a stock car?

If your still on the stock turbo it is absolutely pointless to rev that high bc power falls off way before then. I would shift at 6,800rpms on the stock turbo. It is ok to rev to 7,500 rpms on the stock cams. If you change the cams I would do head studs and valve springs to rev that high.

The ECU cuts fuel at 7599 RPM and restores fuel at 7396. This is how the engine seems to bounce off the Rev Limiter.

7606 is an Evo VIII and IX 4G63. 7599 is the 4B11 Evo X. You're in the X section.
