Yes it can accelerate to over 3K in higher gears if not done too quickly. I believe it can reach red line in the lower gears (1st and 2nd) too with close to full throttle. Honestly I been able to trip limp mode with no codes for awhile probably 30K miles or more. It just seems easier now. If you don't get on it too quickly the car drives fine.
You may have a restricted exhaust.
