I'm the 3rd owner of a 2000 Celica GTS and when I try to do pulls in it, it redlines way lower then it is supposed to. Does the stock Celica have a rev limiter? Is there anything I can do to take it off? it's a 6-speed manual. The redline is around 5-6k depending on what gear it's in. I've put in a new clutch, sparkplugs and changing out the coil packs soon.

UPDATE: checked the lift bolts and they were broken, changed them out it wasn't too bad.

If it is not going past 6k there is something wrong, likely involving the VVT or VVTL systems. A stock ECU should let you rev the low cam up to 7000 when coolant temp is below 60C (140F), and when temp is above 60C you should have lift at 6000-6200 and have fuel cut at 7800-8300 depending on which ECU you have.
Do you have a CEL? What are the codes?

i do have a check engine light and it says the maf is running too lean, i heard that it’s associated with the lifters being broke

Depending on the parameters that triggered the code the ECU may be preventing higher revs.

Have you check your lift bolt? I mean at this point you should look closely towards ecu etc... redline should be 7.8
Should I check my lift bolts when it's a cold start and temp is still way below normal operating temp like in the mornings mine reclines at 7,000 instead of 8,000 like it displays on the gauge also mine has 379,960 miles on it original it's a 2000 celica gts 6spd

That's normal. Lift engagement is prevented w/a cold engine.

It needs to be warmed up for lift to activate.
