I had a similar issue on me EB and it proved to be the map sensor. We were doing an engine change and the engine bumped against it going in.

The car started etc, but wouldn't rev over 3k or so and after a bit of stuffing around swapped out the map sensor for a known good one.

Problem fixed.

It is a simple thing to swap in so I say give it a try.

Cheers
BenJ

Is it timed right?

Have you done anything to it that has possibly caused this to happen? Helps us give you some ideas on what could have gone wrong...

Cheers
Tim

Have a look at the exhaust, it won't rev if it can't get the gas out

Could be collapsed Cat. Pull the O2 sensor and see if it will rev then. If it has extractors, pull the cat off and see how it goes, if stock manifold just pull the O2 sensor.

Sounds like collapsed cat.
Could also possible be the 02 sensor. Double check you're timing.
