Need some insperation & help. Low power.

Hi ao club. Im looking for some advice and direction.
Ive got the 1.9 jtd-m but im not happy with performance and concerned that i may have a under lying problem. Im not getting any real pull under 2500 revs. Ive reserched on here about power loss and followed all the advice.
What ive done in the last month:

Cleaned egr valve but keeps blocking up with sute. (This prob helped more than anything)
Removed and checked all turbo pipes & air pipes for holes or splits & they look fine.
Changed air filter.
Cleaned mas sensor.
Changed map sensor.

What i find more worrying is that when i removed air pipe going to throtle body on top of engine i found the throtle body absoulutly full of black stuff almost like tar & verry messy.
It was also the same when removing pipe going to intercooler. it was full of oil.
Ive cleaned it out as best i can without taking the whole thing off but to me this seems verry wrong.

If anyone can offer some help it would be greatly apreciated.
Thanks Paul
