Run fault codes and look for throttle position sensor problem. cat converter problems are apparent at high RPM's under load as the cat converter blocks the exhaust pipe.

SOURCE: my engine seems like it
there area few different problems that can cause this to happen. If the check engine light is on, you can take it to a local auto parts store, and they will have a basic OBD II scanner and usually can point ya in the right direction as to where the problem is. Personally I would start with checking the throttle position sensor, these are notorious for going out on the 3.8.

SOURCE: PO420 CODE ON CHEVY S10
The code means---
Please make sure there is no air entering the engine behind the maf, such as a vacuum leak or leaks in ducting between the maf and the throttle body.
If that's no the case then its an issue with injectors clogging and they are not working due to "fretting". This "fretting" is electrical terminals to injectors getting oxidation on them and is fixed by unplugging them and replugging them in. The fix is to put a small dab of die-electric grease on the terminals.
I would suggest an injector service with the new GM procedure using "Top Engine Cleaner". This may be all you need but that P0420 bothers me. P0420, Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold, can be set by a poor connection at the PCM or a damaged wiring harness.
Please rate this soluton as FixYa if found useful.

Check your vaccum lines around the TBI. One may be loose and that will keep u from gaining power! Hope this gets u right!

fuel pump is on the engine or either in the gastank follow the fuel line chevys are the easiest auto to work on a new i think yours is in your tank remove both straps and remove hose to filler neck. the fuel **** is in the center of th tank removed by a lock washer system holding the pump in also be careful that you follow the fuel lines though and that you remove bolts that hold the fuel ine to the frame and up to the engine or fuel filter then engine an up to the carb that way you can lower tank without bending fuel line any way however you took it off put it back if a human put this thing together then a human can fix it
