Default Motor cuts out around 3200 RPM

I have a 5-speed manual, and around 3200 RPM while i'm driving it, sometimes the motor will cut out and then back in randomly, but after i get over around 3400 RPM i can give it full throttle it will run fine. Any thoughts on this?

HMM, check your plug wires. make sure they arent leaning up against metal (especially if they are old and brittle)

yep checked that everything is good it feels kinda like its the governor kicking in and what's really wierd about it is that 3200 RPM is 90 MPH in overdrive which is the governor on my truck im wondering if its something with the computer?

Is the motor warmed up? Maybe an over rev safety.
