Default 2003 Timing belt

Hey all! First time here with a question. I replaced my timing belt after it striped, I went through all the steps, timing marks etc... and researched all I could find on this site being careful not to miss anything (Thank God this site exists!).When I fired it up it idles great, however when I ran rpm's up it surges starting around 3500 and jumps to around 4000 and no higher. Back to the drawing board, check and recheck, same result. Timing marks are dead on as far as I can tell before and after start up. Any ideas?

The computer is shutting off the injectors/fuel pump (I forget which) around 3500 to stop you from over revving/hurting the engine when your at idle. It's a normal process. There's nothing wrong. You might not have noticed it before, but it's always been that way. Take it for a ride, it should go all the way up to red-line without a problem if everything else in the engine is OK.
