It could either be a plugged catalytic converter or the heads itself

Will not run over 25 mph


check your speed sensor and your crank position sensor. I did a clutch job on my RIO and forgot to plug the crank sensor in all the way and it wouldn't go above 25 Mph. If that doesn't work, try replacing your Mass air flow sensor, it sets on top of your throttle body and bolt to your air box.

It's possible you may have a faulty air flow meter. Recommend a trip to the garage for an analysis. Motor will not achieve the speed it should have such a defect. OJS

Does your actual speed change or just the displayed speed? It could be a build up of brake dust on the speed sensor behind the rotor if it's displayed speed.
