B18 Revving Problem

OKay so here's the deal

The B18a Swap in my Rex wont rev past 5 grand in neutral. I haven't tested it in gear yet though, but I will tomorrow.

The car burns ALOT of oil, about a quart for every few gallons of gas i put in, but could that cause the engine to not rev high?

I just replaced the ignitor, so it's not that. Could it be the ECU?

It sounds like your problem is inside the engine. Did you do a compression test? Try that and report back. Also, if you get a low compression reading, be sure to add some heavy-weight oil to the cylinder (MTF or similar) and run it again, this way you know where you're losing compression (or at least whether or not your valves are sealing).
