My 2014 A4 automatic will not wind past 6200 in any gear. How can I get it to rev the same as the Golf GTI, since the motor is the same 220 hp.

In short your not supposed to. Running a vehicle at high rpms runs the risk of damaging the engine. The computers are designed to make it so you cannot do this for your safety and others safety around you. If your stupid enough to be trying to blow your engine up thats up to you but the car is not going to do it.

The GTI engine has a different rev limit due to it being tuned for higher performance. If you want to increase the performance of the engine and raise the rev limit it will take an ECU flash. I recommend the APR stage 1. It runs about $559 and will take the rev limit up to about 7000rpm and get you close to 300hp.
