Default Car redlining on its on!! my cars possessed

Ok the short. As i just posted i repaired my intercooler piping, reinstalled the bov and put it back together. so i take it down the street make sure the piping is holding and about 1/8th mile outta no where the car revs to redline and i have to shut it off! i cut it on 3-4 more times same thing but i cut it off at about 3k rpms before it gets to high. i wait about 30 mins put it in 2nd turn it on let off the clutch to force the rpms down and for no reason it stops.! wtf

You're looking for something letting in massive amounts of air into your intake manifold. I've forgotten to attach the PCV before and it will idle at ~4000rpms, so I'd say you're looking for something at least twice that size. If it happens again, turn the car off, pop the hood, pull off a vacuum hose, and blow air into the intake manifold, wherever air comes out is your problem.

I heard the only way to excerise the demons on a possesed engine was to plug the huge vacuum leak you've created.

If you just walk away for 30mins, the demons do not move onto another host. They are more patient than you.

If it didn't do it, then did it, now only does it, then a vacuum line got pushed out. It was on when you started, drove for 1/8th mile, boost pushed it off, now its off.
