    after i drive it hard. my rpms will stick. ill put it in neutral and itll stay at like 4500 rpms. i think this may have something to do with my tps and or throttle cable. any opinions?

    go to the throttle plate and give give crack open the throttle a decent amount and see if it snaps back into place. If not, the return spring or the cable is at fault.

    throttle cable might be alittle too tight.
