SOURCE: no power uphill
"Loss in power" usually means that the combustion chamber in your cars engine is full of carbon. That is left behind because of the unburned fuel. With that type of problem, fuel responses will be slower, poor acceleration, lower rpm, etc. You may overhaul your engine for them to clean the carbon manually, but it'll be expensive and could lead to "loose compression". That means the engine won't be as powerful or responsive as before.
The best way would be to have a carbon ridding solution injected into the engine. The solution will liquify the carbon and other build-ups, which would then restore the "power" of your car. You'll get better acceleration, higher rpm and top speed, etc. have a mechanic do it for you. It's alot cheaper and faster than having the engined overhauled.

SOURCE: Sluggish acceleration
May not be the fuel,but it would not be a bad idea to treat it as such.The NAPA auto parts sells two additives that are really good products,one is lucas fuel treatment for contaminated fuels.The other one is HEET,for water contamination.I would put a full bottle of LUCAS,and two bottles of heet.Put full bottles in for full tank or less.The additives work best with less fuel,so they will work in a consitrated level.If the additives are added soon,they will save the injectors.Bad fuel has been known to damage injectors so much as they have to be replaced.So if I can help,let me know.

It sounds like you did not change those intake manifold gaskets and they are not completely sealing the intake and causing a vacuum leak and the MAP sensor will read high in voltage and cause the bad idle.
