mine rev's up to 7 (6500).

Yep, the 2.7L eta has the 5 grand tach.

The 2.5L has something like a 6500 redline, and cutout at 7 I believe? Thats what I remember reading anyways.

Yeah, the ETA is awesome around town. Torque to the max.

I have an ETA that redlines at 4500 but with the DINAN chip, the redline is increased to 5200. The 'i' engines redline at 6500.
