What code is that? overboost?
I think the only thing you can do to up the rev limiter is get your PCM flashed by SCT. No other piggyback will do that, that I know of

check all of your vacuum lines and hoses first. If all are on, could be your surge solenoid went bad. or perhaps a bad wastegate.

the surge solenoid is located on the passenger side of the engine compartment. you will see a set of three solenoids on the fenderwell. the surge solenoid is the one located in the center of the three. check to see if the hose connections are tight as well as the electrical connector. the ones next to it are the wastegate solenoid and throttle inlet pressure solenoid which may also be your problem. the dealer would be the only source for a replacement at this point. to remove the code you would have to either hook up a scan tool and erase the DTC, or simply remove the negative battery terminal for approximately 5 minutes, then reconnect.

Boost 15 psi safely? - Stage 1

150 mph limit? - SCT flash

A fast PT like fastmdpt's - About $10k-$15k
