engine won't go past 3000 rpms...

recently, a friend of mine intalled an air intake thing (i'm not good with cars). it replaced the air filter box thing. but i can't get the engine past 3000 rpms. when i start the car, it has a really low idle and ridiculously jumpy. but the main thing is i can't get the engine to go past 3000. can someone give me some tips or ideas?

since its a 2003 it is a messed up maf. check the MAF and make sure you too didnt remove it If your using an oiled filter you could of put to much oil on the filter and the oil got sucked up and covered the MAF making it impossible for the MAF to give an accurate reading of air passing by throwing the car into safe mode. The car is in a mode somewhat like safe mode. It wont go past 3000rpms to reduce the chance of hurting its self!

Sounds like you have a vacuum leak somewhere. Put the old stuff back on and see if it clears up.
