Really need to have the engine data scanned, ( not a code read ) to see why the Rev limiter is still kicking in. Have you checked your oil pressure with a mechanical gauge to make sure it is up to spec? Is the oil level sensor working properly, because with a data scan you would see if it was reading too low. If it is, this would definitely kick in the Rev limiter.
