Default Car can't even hit 3k rpms

I've got problems...I have no clue what it is. No CEL's. But when I'm accelerating right before 3000 the car just stops going, it stops accelerating and almost dies.

Some things you should know. I'm at the end of a long clutch install. I'm running an open downpipe. The downpipe isn't bolted on all the way, only the three nuts at the bottom. I lost the bolts but it's just temporary, I'm going to the hard ware store this afternoon.

I just had an oil leak fixed at a mechanics. No more leaks apart from a busted axle seal on the transmission. The transmission fluid is at the low mark and holding steady. I don't think the coolant is as full as it should be. There's a possibility that it's low. My temp gauge is holding steady in the middle.

And I plugged the EGT gauge in the upppipe. I was gonna put it in, but I couldn't even get it out of the old uppipe. It's still in the old one...not plugged in.

First thing I thought of too. Try reflashing the realtime map to stage 2 again...just going in to 'view current map' won't show what realtime map is running.

Alright. Although I thought the cut was a soft one at 4k. This one is kinda gradual then it feels like a hard fuel cut at 3k.

Plug your rear O2 sensor back in...AP does a CEL fix.
