No power change 3/4 pedal or full

Hey y'all, hope you're having a fantastic day. I got a question for you guys. Thread title might be misleading but not another way to describe it. Anyways, while having fun with my car today I sorta realized theres no power difference between about 3/4 pedal and pedal to the medal. Is this normal? Can't say I've experienced this in other cars.

Any ideas? Sticky throttle body?

Really hard to say from here.
Maybe remove the maf coupler and see if you can tell.
Only other thing I can think is the throttle body could be bad.

You should feel/hear/experience a noticeable increase around 3600-3700 RPM.

Look into your maintenance items.

Dirty air filter, bad/old spark plugs, old oil, or just some bunk 87 gas.

I have a brand new green filter but it happened before I owned it. Car has 54k miles on engine and DCT, oil change is up to date. I definitely hear a different noise around 4k rpm. I dont feel a power difference between full throttle and 3/4 of the pedal pushed down. Butt dyno says its the same power.

my car does this some days I feel like. Mine is a 5 speed though. Some days I can floor it from 3500 rpm in second and notice it starts to pull after about 4k rpm and somedays I can floor it and its a complete turd all the way to 7k.

Could try disconnecting battery for an hour and reconnecting to reset monitors and relearn... maybe throttle position sensor is not reading correctly
