Btw war machine, i just bought a new fuel filter today and hopefully that will fix my issue.
That was not my intent at all. I only meant that you should examine more the overall picture. I could laundry list typical issues that would prevent maximum oomph-- but that is much like just blindly throwing money at the problem. I'm not implying anyone else is suggesting that practice- only that for me personally to provide any real direction, more info is needed. Hope that makes better sense. I am in no race to answer questions, and after reviewing the thread- you didn't even follow his advice. Not sure why you assumed I was looking down my nose at you; I was not.

With that in mind, your problem is no doubt the result of reduced low pressure, retarded timing, lack of ignition /and / or weak spark, reduced combustion and / or compression, air / fuel mixture inefficiency, incorrect air density metering, intake air restriction, exhaust gas restriction... see my point?

I hope your fuel filter does fix the issue, but if it's clogged enough to really hamper WOT flogging the 17 year old car like a backdoor rug-- likely there are other issues that are contributing and / or helping mask other problems related to reduced performance. What is the MPG like city / hwy?
