It sounds like the catalytic converter is plugged up in the exhaust.

I hollowed it out, that's not it. I also replaced the EGR valve.

It sounds to me the injectors are bad. Runs fine till you hit the gas. Try that and let me know what happens. I had a s-10 do the same thing

The fuel injection spider on top of the engine is bad or it may have jumped one notch out of time.
