Default low power, shifting issues

Hello, I have a 99.5 golf. two weeks ago it had a low power issue. it was intermittent, and after a few days it basically went away. I bought a scanning logging tool because of it and have been playing with it. It still doesn't feel 100% though its close. when I am logging, the boost does not go as high in 4th and even less high yet in 5th. Its not a ton different, but noticeable.

My shifter has been loose since I bought this car 8 years ago. Its the east west direction that is sloppy. I have looked at the interior side many times and I never find any slop what so ever. On the trans side I replaced the outer shifting mechanism 6 or 7 years ago and it help a tiny bit. Its getting worse now though, so bad it wont go into reverse at times.

any thoughts or help with these issues would be greatly appreciated.
