Your vehicle is not equipped with a "electric rev limiter" the problem you're having is the throttle positioning sensor located under me the throttle body, it is a micro switch which tells the computer when you are idle or when you are at full throttle, that switch is no longer available from the dealer or anywhere else. I custom make them, but there $200.
