My car revs without the clutch in

Okay i had a leak in my up-pipe the flange was missing two nuts and the gasket was blown...so anyways i think i had my utec tuned with this leak. I got this problem fixed (the leak) but now when i drive my car if i punch it in 3rd, 4th and esp 5th around 4 grand it revs to about 5500 (it happens at different rpms usally around this area though) the mph go up and when the speedo catches with the rpms it car continues on, but if i give it a lil gas it doesnt do this. Is this cause of the utec or is my car just screwed?

This deffinatly sounds like a clutch problem. My friend used to have a clutch on his ddsm that would do that and his clutch was fried.
