Check Engine Light on ? Even if it isn't, you need to pull the codes. You have one (or more ) that has triggered the reduced power.
Post them up here (numbers only, no descriptions) and we should be able to point you to the problem.

I think normally the reduced power problem is 9/10 times related to the throttle body and/or accelerator pedal, no?

The HPFP could effect rail pressure, I am sure.
