I have a Dinan intake (and exhaust), and it kinda seems like the intake isn't sucking in air, could a dirty air filter cause this kind of problem?

Any help is appreciated ... just kinda scared I'm gonna have to come with $1000 for a new clutch.

Have you had your fuel filter replaced? Clogged Fuel filter, Clogged Catalytic converter could also be something..
