The vapors are stored in the charcoal canister that is above the left rear wheel. The purge valve sucks the vapors out of this tank.

Back to the rev problem.
What happens if you operate the throttle linkage under the hood by hand? Have you tried that?
Also look at the traction control throttle body butterfly, it should be wide open.
