Default why wont my 1990 honda civic hatch with a d15 go above 4500RPM or so?

I have a 1990 honda civic i just bought it a couple days ago and when i was driving it home i noticed it wasn't going above 4500 RPM or so and its a 4spd now but there was a 5spd on it also it has headers a dumb *** tin can exhaust and i also put a cold air intake and iridium spark plugs and the rest is stoke i know but that's how i bought it please help me is the 2 and half in. exhaust to big? mabey its bigger but has the stock cat on it still... thanks any ideas?

Uhh because its not a race car despite what ricers say. It should also have a rev limiter to prevent idiots from blowing up their engine because they want to race other ricers. Cold air intakes won't add any performance to that old civic trust me, neither will spoilers, stickers, ecm chips, or throttle body spacers. Don't blow a whole lot on a 91 civic because it will never be that fast; if your a teenager you think that your car is always so fast but you havn't truly been in a fast car. Don't add a Fart cannon on it either b/c that just looks and sounds stupid.
