does it die over 86 or does it not accelerat any more over 86

It wont accelerate over 86. The limiters dont even kick in yet. Im going to get a full tune up in the next few weeks and see if that helps also use some lucas fuel treatment to clean the injectors out and see if that gives it a little something too.
