    well, it could be the TPS (i know its my answer foe everything now). Anyway, check the voltage...my Ls wouldnt rev past 3k rpm, until the TPS was hooked up. When it was hooked up incorrectly I had .7 closed throttle voltage and had a surge between 1500-2k prm.

    well chances are that a sensor is bad and your ecu has realized that and cut your rev limit down. check cps, tps, and other vital sensors.
