First of all this will sound stupid.
My xr6 used to rev to about 3000 then feel like it suddenly hit boost my mates exact same year car does it and still hits the 3k and flys. He does have a different exhaust mine is a pacemaker headers hi-flow cat to redback catback, his is a lukey headers, lukey non hi-flow cat and lukey cat back. Does anyone have any ideas why mine has lost this sudden power? car drives fine any other time. any information at all will help.
Cheers Corey

Could be a number of things. Bad fuel , plugs and coils may be getting weak , dirty air and fuel filter. Engine could be gettin the kays high and losing a bit of balls.
