1991 camaro power issue

I have a 91 camaro v8 305 with 5-speed manual. When I first got the car I was able to stand on the gas and roast the tires all day, but now I can't get it to even spin the tires at all, it seems to have barely any power, it does not bog down or hesitate, it just does not accelerate. I have recently replace the Distributor cap and rotor, new wires and plugs, and new fuel injectors. The car used to be fun, but now it drives like a honda civic.

No bog or hesitation and still no acceleration with a stick car.Does it rev up in gear but not accelerate?A slipping clutch will not tranfer the power to the ground.

crapped up fuel filter can be attributed to about 90 percent of drivability issues.

X2 especially if this car has a Hypertech chip in it's computer. It just fools the computer into thinking it's cold all the time and makes it dump more fuel.
