Could be any number of things, I would test for proper fuel pressure and flow, if nothing there then move onto testing the exhaust system for too high back pressure, if that checked good then hooking it up systems diagnostic equipment and see what the computer can tell me.

has good fuel pressure there is no code

Then move onto the exhaust.

Test for too much back pressure. Most parts stores carry the kit.

its all fixed it was a clogged cat

So it was high back pressure.
