It sounds like you may have a clogged converter, you can remove oxygen sensor before converter to see if it helps or install pressure guage and monitor while reving engine, it shouldnt go over a few psi. If good I'd replace plugs and wires.

removed converter with in park you can rev up to 4500 and it will studder but i am not sure if there is a rev limiter


Expert:  Dan replied 6 years ago.
Replace the spark plugs and wires then let me know if that helps. Wires are a common cause if converter is good.

the exhaust at tail pipe was very hot
Expert:  Dan replied 6 years ago.
If plug wire is bad it can cause unburned fuel to go into exhaust causing it to heat up.
