You could have a problem with exhaust back-pressure which can stem from a restricted converter. To test for this you can use an exhaust back pressure tester inserted in the upstream 02 sensor. You can also remove the upstream 02 sensor and test drive the car. There should be some improvement in the car's performance under load with the exhaust having a place to go. This will be very noisy, you will not want to run the car like this for too long.
