so you fixed a bad exhaust leak?? burned out the gasket ?? front pipe to manifold connection????
if you disconnect the manifold can you rev higher than 2500 rpm
i'm thinking the converter is restricted now that you mentioned exhaust leak
higher back pressure will blow out/burn up gaskets causing leaks
if the back pressure is high enough you will lose rpm as the engine exhaust trys to excape
