    wire problems

    I put a LS1 in a jeep. It runs great. Just will not go over 2000 rpms. I have got a new computer thinking that was the problem and it is still doing it. I have a turbo 350 trans. They programed the computer for a manual trans. thinking that was the problem.
    They are telling me that they have never heard of this problem.

    HELP

    almost sounds like it is stuck in what is called "limp mode" gives you just enough to keep from blowing up and to get off the road safely.

    Any way you can get scanner on it and see what is going on?

    Best suggestion is to double check all the connections of all the sensors, fuel feed adn so forth? Are you running any O2 sensors?

    I have O2 sensors. My check engine light is not lighting up. Would it be still throwing a code if the light is not on?

    I would start simple at first....probe the tps sensor with a volt meter with the key on engine off and see what voltage you're seeing at wot. Should be ~5 volts or a little less. Since it's a transplant it could be a number of things. Just have to start chasing stuff down. Are you running the MAF on it? Are you 100% that the ses light is functioning? Does it light up when you turn the key to run?

    the cable is the right length. Could it be the motor is getting to much air?

    +1 for MAF question. back when i was running a Nissan motor the ECU would cut at 2500rpm if the MAF was either disconnected or otherwise defunct. lots of people would ask why they couldn't rev their new engine, and i've never heard of any other problem giving that symptom.

    if it is connected, probe its wires at its connector and at the ECU to see if there's a break somewhere.
