Sags and slows with more gas

I know the viking needs maintenance but noticed for the first time today that when I push the skinny pedal towards the floor it actually slows down. Spark plug?

One day it was fine. The next day a problem. It starts up and runs normally at idle and low throttle. Hopefully just the plug.

Maybe the fuel pump. I don't think there is an inline fuel filter to change. Clogged injector or jets? Maybe valves?
