sounds to me like its going into limp mode ??
did u jet wash engine ? u might have disturbed a sensor with water or lance maybe?
or have u got water leak inside cabin ? water dripping down loom ?
limp mode will restrict engine revs to prevent damage,will run like bag of sh*te,when mine did it ran awful,just stop turn off ign wait 20 secs restaart,if it keeps doin it u might wanna plug it in to code reader to see which direction it points u in ? best of luck,chris
