Post DPF query

Following a recent PDF problem I have tried on occasion to modify my driving style by holding the car in a lower gear to build up the revs hoping that this might prevent a return of the PDF clogging.
I have noticed a marked fall off in power around 4500 revs as if a limiter was preventing over revving.
As Honda engines are renowned for their high revving ability is this restriction in my case normal?

Isn't 4500 rpm enough for you in a diesel

You're hitting the limiter

I believe that it would be the limiter starting to cut in at those revs.
Good job the engine has one too.

Sorry to be pedantic, but it is DPF, not PDF.

I've updated the title.
