i would say check the head gasket but since its recently been done.. i doubt that would be your problem.. but check and make sure anyway, have you checked your oil level? other that this i really dont know.. could be anything, airfilter could be fa*ked, plugs? im not sure..

cheers, rob

Doubt it's fuel pressure, I'd expect that to be at high RPM - are all the coils producing a good spark?
Stick a spare plug in the coil leads, one at a time, and run the motor - is the spark nice and fat and blue/white?
Yellow/red spark=weak coil.

Lack of power going up hills is usually related to faulty coil/s.

Let us know how you get on.
