I did a host of things to find out that it was a rather simple fix for me.
There is a tube / hose that goes from my air intake to the top of my engine block. While feeling around the engine for possible bad connections at my spark plugs, I bumped a this tube. For some reason the connection at the engine side had came loose. I pushed in back into place (felt like it snapped/ clicked back into place) and my power came back.
Prior to that I had:
removed my cat conv which assisted a little
I removed my air filter: this helped more than the cat conv. But can't drive around with out filter.
When I put them all back on, the same problem pesisted. Not sure if you use a knn filter, but if you do, you also may have over oiled the filter which could cause a build up on your mass air flow sensor. To clean that I was recommended to use choke/carb cleaner and canned air to remove the residue.
If this fixes your challenge, please let me know.
