LoAlty, you've been here awhile, I expect more out of you than this. The 98-99 Altimas have a lower redline at 6250 for God knows why, (the 00-01's have it because of the modifications that add the extra 5hp) but it's an engine issue, not an instrumentation issue. If your car jumps to 8 when you floor it, you need to have some shit fixed soon because you're going to blow that motherf*cker through the hood. The reason some cars rev higher is that they need the high revs to produce the power - honda engines are the perfect example. The KA24 was (is..?) a truck motor, so it needs the power lower in the rev band. Hence it only redlines at 6500 or 6250 RPM. If you want to get your rev's higher, you'll have to have custom work done to strengthen the bottom end (connecting rods and pistons) and some balancing work done and a reprogrammed ECU to change the actual redline.
