In any gear, and it's not a rev. limiter, 'cause I know what those feel like, it just dies at 4400 rpms, like totally falls on its face 'til the revs die down, then I can go again... what's wrong?

Sounds like an Ignition problem. Maybey the coil is going bad ?

Why would the coil cut out at 4400 rpms? I can't think of anything that would be causing my car to do this, it's really annoying.

Ah ha! I too have changed the speedo, actually the whole gauge cluster, out for one from a GT... very interesting. Did you figure out why it does this? I'd hate to have to put back that old 95 mph one...
