What could cause a loss of power ????

My 97 528i with 220k has been a project....its never not ran or had any major issues, its just an aging car. I've done all the usual preventative type stuff (transmission service, O2 sensors, CCV , alternator , belts and hoses, replaced a broken header and gaskets, front wheel speed sensor, new plugs, ect). I do believe I need a VCG as I had oil in the plug channels and the car will sometimes smoke a little bit. My concern is that my car used to really respond to the gas pedal. Now it seems that rather Im at 1/4 pedal or 3/4 pedal its picking up about the same. Its not so much "lagging", its just not responding with the same "oomph !!! " as before. What might cause this ? Thanks for taking the time !
