Meter in refers to the restriction of a hydraulic circuits inlet flow. They may only be used when utilizing opposing loads as these systems have no way of preventing a load from running away. These are used to regulate motor speed and ram speeds.

Meter out refers to the circuits restriction of the outlet flow. i.e. a hydraulic ram used for offloading heavy material such as a car lift. A meter out system would be used to regulate the flow evacuating the system as to prevent a run-away and maintain load control.

If this is the Eco Tech Vauxhall Engine then it will either be the EGR Valve (Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve) or the Mass Air Flow Meter. It's worth disconnecting the Mass Air Flow Meter when it is reving and see if this alters the revs if not then I would suggest cleaning the EGR Valve as they get clogged up with black soot and subsequently alters the air to fuel mixture as would the Mass Air Flow!
