Picture this:
You're cruising down the highway, and coming into a really big, sloped curve. one of the best turns fabricated by your state highway department. you start to enter it, hit the apex, and floor it.
you speed up 5 mph.
this happens anywhere else you drive.

what do you think is causing this? I mean, ik it doesn't have a lot of power anyways, but it should still accelerate better than that. it seems like it just falls off after 4.5k RPMs.
I have a muffler kit that I'm going to put on soon, so maybe that will help? (better airflow)

List of things done so far:
new plugs
cleaned injectors
new fuel pump(it went out, not really related)
new air cleaner

what do you think it could be?

--if V6, use high octane fuel only
--check your compression
--practice downshifting (both MT and AT) without going over 5.5k rpm
