It all has to do with the fuel pump relay.
If you want to play a good practical joke on someone stick a VW Fox 
fuel pump relay into their quattro and see them freak when the thing 
cuts out at 5500 rpm!
Some fuel pump relays cut above 6500 rpm and some below 6500 rpm.  
Guess it depends on your luck.
Mine goes to 6700 rpm.
