2005 Volkswagen GTI 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 56,000 miles

Recently had the car modified with an APR ecu upgrade to increase horsepower and rev limit. The exact opposite actually happened. The car wont go into gear higher than 6200 rpms which is my redline. So I cant even take it out to what I used to be able to.

Do you
have the same problem?

Contact the company that made ECU and ask what the rev limit is set at.
