Losing RPM's!?

I have a 88 Prelude 4ws 2litre Si, ...car was running great!, until I went on a long drive and had to climb some hills. I lost my high rpms and now I bog down on hills, ..my rpms max out around 5000. I changed the fuel filter, cap/rotar and plugs. it still idles great, its not over heating, no smoke or steam from the exhaust and fluids are fine. I'm not sure where to go from here. I have heard that it could be the cat converter. Any ideas for me? Please help thanks.

Could be your clutch not grabbing when it heats up, which is after a long drive or in constant usage...

Cat-converter, if clogged up can cause that yes...
