Default RE: Sluggish acceleration

have u tried plugs, wires, cap, and rotor? Basically a full tune up. That could effect the full power of the vehicle.
Also, try some fuel system cleaner. I recommend techron. Its like 13 bucks a bottle but it cleans the system very well. Injectors, Valves, etc.
Also have you changed the fuel filter? That could cause sluggishness. Changing it works wonders.
