    Get the car scanned if you can and see if it brings up any fault codes, also have a look in the engine bay and see if there are any split pipes at all.

    Guessing you are dipping in and out of limp mode or you have a big leak somewhere...

    Check all pipes under the inlet manifold for splits... be aware they may not be obvious either so pull them about a bit or see if you can get a smoke test done... they work real well ;P
