Thumbs down help, cars in limp mode!

hi peoples, i got my new motor in my car now and i started it up, seems like its in limp mode because it wont rev up past 3000 rpm and it seems really really boggy, i got 2 CEL 's one for 02 sensor and the other was a code 14 which is iacv. they both seemed plgged in rite but i tried to follow the wiring to the ecu and dont seem to be able to follow it too well.

What has me puzzled rite now is the reason why its in limp mode, these two problems shouldnt be causing it to do that. any help would be great peeps

goes into limp mode as soon as the CEL comes on wether its for a knock sensor or a IACV. . any codes it protects itself . .

your thinking of the crank angle sensor usually wont let it rev past about 3 grand or so

it will go past 3000 rpm.... it spits and sputters until 3000 rpm anything higher than that it's fine. Is there a way to see what engine code is comming on, the engine light is on. i want to replace the o2 sensor but there is two, how doo i know what one is bad?
