I'm kinda stumped and really want to avoid throwing parts at this car until I can get it to the shop I work at monday for the data reader. My problem gradually started when I noticed she was a little down on power. I figured it may have been some bad gas I got somewhere. Wasn't too bad. Then the other day it had trouble starting in the morning after it sat over night. On my way home from work the same day one of the rubber hoses that comes off the EGR tube blew off at 3k RPM and I imediately thought its a clogged cat or bad EGR. At that point the power loss was significant at WOT and felt like a six cylinder. I have since deleted the EGR with a block off plate, removed it's vacuum lines, feed tube and turned it off with my tuner. Other than getting rid of a small vacuum leak I didn't really know I had due to a blown diaphragm I still have NO POWER over 3k. It's like I'm trying to make a pull through all gears with my E Brake up. It has no codes yet but the service engine soon light did come on... I've not yet checked fuel pressure. All of my diagnostic tools are locked up at the shop. I've got a new fuel filter here that I'm gonna throw on in the morning. Just need some ideas to think on.. Does this seem like a clogged cat to anyone else or more a fuel related issue? Possible pump going bad slowly? FPRegulator maybe? The car doesn't break up or miss so I'm ruling out ignition. It just takes forever to get through a gear. I know it's something simple, I just need to pin point it. Right now any insight may put me on the right track. Maybe I can make it to the race track tomorrow night. Thanks in advance. I HAVE CLEANED MY MAF. My throttle body is brand new and super clean inside. No vacuum leaks. I have smoke tested it since the EGR delete. I've been searching this site along with Google for anything close with minimal results.
