is there even a rev limiter built into the eec?
Or is it just running out of steam?

there is a rev limiter, i believe that it is at 6,200 rmp. It will literally bounce it un der the right conditions. These engines with stock valvetrain will float valves at around 7,500, this is if they are carburated.

i recently ran a 5.0 mustang on a chassis dyno, and it was about 600 rpm off, he had an aftermarket tach, and the tach on the dyno that both confirmed it was off.
