I don't know if your question was answered or not, but I had a similar problem and had to replace the mass airflow sensor (which is about $400 for the 2000 model).  My car too would rev great till about 3200 RPM, then nothing.  Replaced the mass airflow sensor and no more problem.

I have the same problem with my 2003 max se,stick shift-6 speed.I changed coils first, then mass sensor and nothing.Still have the same problem.But only when motor is hot,never when its cold.Well i realy think its not because of your transmission.Good luck!!!

Same here 2000 5spd, new clutch, new coils and spark plugs. But over 3200rpms it falls flat on its face.. 171,000... It using a lot more fuel, think it might be MAF or ECT or combo.
