Default 97 sounds strange above 3000 rpm

When driving around, when I go for a little more RPM, when the truck goes above 3000-ish rpm, it sounds like it wants to blow up, total tone change. Still runs smooth and keeps going, was wondering if anyone else has had this happen? Truck has a 5 spd, and 207,000. Thanks

My 2002 ranger cuts out at 3000 both while in nutral and while trying to drive down the highway.

it's supposed to. it's a rev. limiter.
besides why are you trying to rev your engine over 3000 RPM's anyway?
