Honestly I think you're just feeling how bad the throttle response is and how much you need a little more power sounds like to me.....does it downshift when you floor it?

The first thing, though it's obvious, is to check the air filter and plugs. If something's clogged or fouled up, it'll take the power out of your engine like a sponge.

A tune would do the trick too if you were wanting to kill two birds with one stone
