Something simple stupid I'm sure you have already done. Check engine oil levels and HPOP oil level. I know it sound kindergarden but there are so many threads on here stating low or looseing power and it's simple oil levels being low. You could dig deeper and check your screens in your fuel tank and make sure your fuel bowl is cleaned out not just a new filter but clean the bowl out. Hope your IDM isn't going out. Get a qiuck scan if time allows. Might bring up the problem. Good luck. Let us know what you find out.
