Car doesnt go past 3500RPM

I have a 5.0 H.O. motor from a 1991 mustang. F303 cam, aluminum heads, 1.7 rockers, typhoon upper and lower intake and 5speed. For some reason my rpms do not go past 3500 while driving. what could be the cause of this?

Maybe the throttle cable is getting snagged on something? I don't know if those cars have a TPS or an equivalent but I would check that.

Need a little more info, does power just cut off? do you completely lack power?

Does the engine sound like its revving past 3500 but tach is only showing 3500?

Is it WOT, part throttle, etc?
