When I step on the gas it starts to rev normally and then the engine just slows to half power and the tach still reads the same RPMs whats wrong?

that is not nearly enough information to even begin to diagnose -

1. is the car a manual or automatic
2. is it in gear when you are doing this
3. are you getting any kind of a CEL (check engine light)
4. did you recently put lower than 91 octane in the tank?

1. Manual
2. Yes
3. The sun roof leaked and the dash board fried so I do not know.
4. No

could be the clutch is out - if you are getting the revs but not the acceleration

or

I would take it and have the codes pulled - a misfire would cause the engine to only allow a reduced amount of throttle to prevent any further damage

No I didn't. I do not think its the clutch because I am getting lower revs relative to pressure on the accelerator. Not revs and no acceleration.
