rev limiter?

I have a late 1999 7.3 and when i put my foot to the floor it gets to 2500 rpms then almost seems like it hits a rev limiter and wont shift untill i let off it... i just purchused the truck a couple weeks ago and it has a programer in it but the guy lost the actual handheld thing and forgot what kind of chip it was so im taking it to a dealer in the next few weeks to get it reflashed. then i plan on buying a custom chip. so my question is will a custom chip take this rev limiter out?
thanks guys

I think you've got some other issues. Rev limiter is set around 3500, not 2500.

Sounds like either the computer is reading wrong, or the trans is on the way out.
