Help please I recently just got my car insured and it decided to not wanna work now so basically I’ve had a straight pipe for about 2-3 months the car worked perfectly fine no problems at all it has a blow off valve on it aswell it’s been on it since 1-2 years no problems aswell so basically 1-2 weeks ago when I got my car insured I went to a meet and when I was leaving the meet I decided to rev it and when I did it redlined but had a sputtering sound like a rev limiter even though I don’t have one and it sounded like something was stuck in the car. Later on it was driveable and a week or so later the issue became even worst to the point where the sputtering was happening at about 4-5k rpm however I could go through and redline it but it sounded like it was dying or something then I just let it wait a bit and now it’s worst when I start it it’s perfectly fine but still sputters around 4-5 but if I drive it for about 5 minutes the car will not go over 2k it just starts sputtering and feels like it’s dying and sometimes it even decides to turn off by it self then when you try starting it it doesn’t want to but after 10-20 mins it will start up like nothings wrong please help I don’t know much about cars so sorry but that’s the best I could explain it

also forgot to mention prior to this issue I’ve replaced spark plugs ngk and coils and another thing is that when it’s on idle and I turn on the lights and use the power windows it starts to feel like it’s dying even more and sometimes usually turns off then doesn’t want to start after 10-20 mins

Always start with the simple cheap things,you've changed the plugs and packs,good,check the earths for the engine,if need be make some simple heavy cables up and find any earthing points in the engine bay and attach to the block,next would be fuel,the wiring for the fuel pump can be a suspect,if need be search on here for the hard wiring setup for the pump,always worth it to future proof for upgrades,is the car standard? Possible boost controller problem
