Icon2 Crx with D16z6 swap wont rev past 4k

ok so heres the deal, im in the process of buying a 89crx si. it has a d16z6 swap. i havent gone to see the car yet all i know of it is the pictures and talking to the owner who knows nothing about cars..awesome right? its a pretty clean car. he tells me it wont rev past 4000rpm and that it needs a new distributor and ecu and should run good. i already have both. is that what the engine needs ? the other odd thing is this "special" guy has just the air filter mounted directly to the throttle body, could it be a restriction of some type? im trying to look at all my possibilities before i go see the car this weekend this way i can hopefully get it to run right before i trade him vehicles.

It might possibly be the ecu if it already needs one.
