Loss of power as when you hit the skinny pedal it is real sluggish? Remove the air filter element and see if that makes it better. If not then when was the last time the inline fuel filter was changed? If either of these are clogged they will kill performance.

Do you know what was good about the good old days? I wasn't good, And I wasn't old!

Senators and Congressman should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers so we could identify their corporate sponsors....

The fuel filter is new, I haven't ran it straight off without the filter yet. The main concern is the sputter at low rpms

If you can eliminate the fuel and air filter as the cause then the next thing I would do is check the Throttle Position Sensor in the Throttle Body. Some times the shaft that the TPS is connected to gets worn out. I would also remove and clean the Idle Air Control sensor in the TB. The IAC can get real dirty along with the bore it sits in. Remove it and clean it with some type of liquid like carb cleaner and fine steel wool. Make sure you clean the bore in the TB also.

I like to check all the stuff that costs nothing to check first...
