If there is a catalytic converter on there it may be getting plugged. Also dirty injectors may attribute to this, run some fuel injection cleaner threw the gas.

No cat did the cleaner trick no go

I would check for vacuum leaks, Is that a TBI on there? Also check the TBI base gasket. You can spray carb. cleaner like down the intake gasket, and at the TBI base gasket, rpm would pick up if there is a leak. 02 sensor could have a play in this.
