its your transmissions, get it rebuilt

on craigs list they sell sr20 trannys for around $250-$300 with around 50k-60k on them. Seems cheaper than a rebuild to me.

does the car sound deeper than it did before? could just be a coilpack..

check all your injectors and make sure they are plugged in, and that your maf sensor is working, then go from there.
