Also the fact that your car does not want to run over 3800 RPM is an indicator that it may be running out of fuel. You will need to conduct a fuel pressure and delivery test to confirm if this is the issue.
So are there lingering effects of running it out of fuel. Do pressures have to be adjusted, etc.?
