Can you feel if the transmission is slipping in lower gears? That is do you feel that it is revving hard and not driving as you would expect?

Better get the transmission looked at, it may be the problem, if the transmission oil is dirty and smells burnt it will be slipping start here.

Also when you start it the rev pointer goes below the idle level and the pointer goes up and down.
It also gives backfire when reaching 120kmh but now it backfires even at 40kmh

I feel that you better start looking at the tune and check that the idle control motor is working, start with the tune side first and see how that improves things.

You need to do the fuel filter as part of the tune, a badly blocked fuel filter can cause some of your problems.

Can a leak around the gear box also cause the feel in the rev; thus in acceleration peddel. There is a leak of transmission oil at the left shaft joint and Also the 4wd attachment.
Today we used these autofix machines on it and most of the detected faults were Air related

Unless the transmission is very low on oil it should not give you there symptoms that is unless the transmission is failing, but I feel that it is engine related problem.
