Take it to a shop you trust and have it checked out. Could be fuel, could be restricted exhaust, any number of things can cause low performance.

Someone told me to replace the fuel filter because that could be the reason. But the fuel filter is in the tank and i would rather not drop the tank and open it up if i didnt absolutely have to

That is correct, a fuel pressure test will tell the tale on that, your shop will know how to proceed.
