to move on to the exhaust side...hows the flow out of the cat.. standing still at 4500 rpm? alot more than at 1000 rpm? also hows the load fuel pressure? the normal pressure specification at idle should be at 38psi and with the pressure regulator vacuum hose disconnected it should be 47-50 psi.

Many newer vehicles have a rev limiter programmed into the computer to prevent engine damage. This could be what's going on. The computer won't allow you to rev the engine past the 4000 RPM mark. HTH. -Jim
