Default Loss of power then surging

Ok so i was driving to meet up with some friends today, and when i went to shift to 4th gear i lost all power. I pulled over slowly and tried to get it going in first gear and when i pushed the accelerator it pulsed but did not hold any power. After turning the car off and back on it seemed to be alright but it repeated the issue one more time before i could make it home.

well luckily no repetition of the issue, though i did have to swap to my spare oil cooler due to a leaky line.

ok so i had a repetition when i swapped braided lines from corksport into my car. While the rep. i emailed was very helpful trying to help me figure this out, it did not get fixed. Maybe you guys can help. The car starts just fine and holds a fine idle but when i touch the gas pedal it goes to 1500 rpm then just bounces. It will not hold anything at or above 1500 and there are no lights appearing on my dash. On a whim i disconnected the tps and got it to run alright but after it got warm it just wanted to die. The heat read fine on the dash but it felt really hot when i got under the hood. By hot i mean it almost burnt my hand when i put it on the strut bar .
