    2002 wrx 2.0 turbo 5 speed. (thread jacker)

    Just rebuilt the engine and i am having issues getting it to rev past 3k rpm.

    Car will rev all the way to redline if i wanted on initial start. then it will die down to 3k rpm and wont rev past there. it idles fine at 800 and i can drive it but i have to shift at 2k rpm. while im driving in 4th and get up to 2krpm it cuts power intill i push in the clutch and let it out to continue under 2k rpm.
    cars is mostly stock besides a knock off bov to atmosphere and a 3inch exhaust all the way back. and a cone filter. Car is not throwing cel. it has b4 and it was neatrual switch changed that.

    things ive tried
    o2 sensor
    fuel pump
    fuel filter
    cam sensor
    crank sensor

    ive been researching this for quite some time and am very confused on what it could be.

    things i may try soon
    map sensor?
    timing ?
    any ideas i would really appreciate. thankyou

    Had a mechanic look at it. Hence I've been driving it for around 4k like that shifting b4 2k lol. Then mechanic gets it towed back to my shop. now it has no spark. idiot mechanic couldn't tell me anything. Thier is power to coils but no spark. check grounds and power to coils. no cel dam im lost on this subie =/

    The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry. Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms, 1929
