Need advice, 5.8L wont rev past 3K
Ok, so slight update. had the tuner come and tune the car. Started up the car, and fired right away. Let it run for five min before driving. Drove it to the corner, half throttle and pulled over to log. Made a right and in first gear floored it and would not go past 3000 rpm. pulled over and logged again.....did a second gear pull full throttle and still wont go past 3000 rmp. (mind you I did start off in 1st and light throttle till i bumped it to second gear....) Pulled it in the drive way and pulled spark plugs for compression test. All cylinders were between 140 and 160, so im assuming i have good compression.
Now my stall is a 3000-3200 i believe FWIR. Do you guys think it could be the cam?
Side note. When I pulled the spout out and advanced the timing to 13* I could rev it past 4000 rpm. So this has me stumped. And frusterated.
