engine cut out at 3800 rpm

I have a 89 325i vert, everything is good until I reach about 3800 rpm's then the engine has a power loss. I have checked the fuel pressure regulator, the full throttle switch and the mass air flow sensor, no luck so far, any ideas on what I should do next

Could be :


camshaft sensor

crankshaft sensor

Im not sure what of the above sensors you have but one controls the injectors and the other the spark.

I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!

computer input or computer failure if it is software/electrical.

Broken valve spring if it is mechanical.

Those would be my first 2 things to run down along with what has already been mentioned above.
