Back to your original question. 5000 RPM is basically the max rpm and max throttle shift point - AFAIK there is no mechanical or electronic rev limiter and no "set" redline. No way to get 7000 RPM out of this car. 5K is already quite a high RPM for a diesel like this. Change the primary and secondary fuel filter, and your (future) car will most likely downshift just fine. Also check the kickdown switch, and you can search for EGR disable on the board which makes it more eager to downshift.
