If you hit the clutch at the right moment, the engine will spin past 6500 rpm even unchipped.

Otherwise, I don't know of anything besides downshifting too soon that will do it. The ecu learns your driving and adapts to it but it doesn't mess with the rev limiter. Something might be broken.

I wouldn't be smacking up against the limiter so much. Its not the best thing for the car and your getting out of the turbos sweet spot anyway by holding it that long before the shift.
