I Need a New Pcm

so the past few days have been rough for my car i keep getting reduced engine power messages on the dic and occasionally a 1681 code my tps codes are shut off, ii'm sure they would throw otherwise. i mean, i could try a new throttle body i am weary that my meth injection may have done something to cause this. it's just a lot of signs of pcm failure. fml. anyone know something i don't? i clear the codes with my interceptor the car quickly goes back to normal then i drive it happens again then i do the same shit til the cars real warmed up. my car feels weaker lately, may have to do with the fact that it's been about 100 degrees on long island. i'm worried it sucks. i seriously need a daily.

From searching around, it may seem it is the PCM.
