If the engine has the "powerleash" engine brake, the o-rings on the engine brake solinoids could be bad/cut and causing oil leaking into piston area and slightly applying brake. We have seen this before quite often. As far as the low power, read some of the posts on the 460 HP CV's and about going to the dealer to get both ECU's reflashed with the new software for poor throttle responce. Need last 6 of the vin and I can tell you if it need the new software.

Also does it have a auto shift or ultrashift trans? If so the engine brake will engage to help the trans shift even if you got the brake turned off.
