400E won't rev past 5000rpm

The car runs great and this past weekend on a tour visit to Panoz near Atlanta was cruising at 80mph and getting 25 mpg.

The problem is that in every gear the motor won't spin more than 5k like it was electronically limited. Can understand this in high gear but in kickdown mode it won't shift to the next higher gear.
When passing etc, you have to blip the accelerator to force a shift
and this is NOT normal as it should turn 6k easy.

A tech suggested looking into the power module and will in the morning. Putting this out tonight to see if anyone has run across this in the past and what their remedy was. This also would pertain to all the late V8s. The 400E is a 93 model.
