Problem is a lot of things could cause that feeling. Hot or humid days, clogged cats, bad ignition system (plugs, wires, rotor), timing is off, people with a slipping clutch often report a feeling of a power loss...

If you wereat WOT, perhaps the cable is stretched a bit and you weren't really at WOT even though you had the pedal floored.

Is it still ahppening today? Change anything recently or notice any other problems?
