Hello, consider that an engine needs the following to run and operate properly: Fuel, air, spark and a good clear exhaust flow. Restricted exhaust could cause the engine to seemingly run fine but lack power. Also an air intake issue could cause a problem. Seek guidance from a local technician that can help.
