Was the engine running correctly before you worked on it? You might have tricked the ECU to put the trans in "limp" mode with an engine modification somewhere along the line. Any one of the dozen or so engine sensors can cause this if the ECU isn't getting the voltage signal it expects to receive from one or more of them. It could be as simple as a bad harness connection. Check the OBD, I bet there's a code stored.
