Red face '89 2.8L V6 Camaro lags

My 89 Camaro RS has no power going down the street. What's the problem? It's a 135hp, and all of the sudden slowed down. Replaced the o2 sensor, distributer module, cap and rotor, timing chain and tensioner and Ignition Coil. What's wrong? Does anybody have the answers?

"All of a sudden" makes me think it is not a plugged catelistic convertor, but it could be. Is fuel pressure good? Do the throttle plates open properly if you have a helper put the pedal to the floor (like cable adjustment slipped)?

Pull the spark plugs and see what they read. These are your best witness to whats actually going on inside there. Then you can go from there as to what direction you need to be looking for problems.

You might do the visual look over first see if its something obvious like a plug wire burned or fell off and check the things dnult mentioned.
