Yes the car idles fine and revs good in park only does it during acceleration. I did also replace the fuel filter. Could it be the maf, fuel pump or the catalytic converter.

You should have codes read anyway to see if anything shows. Fuel pressure test would help too. Check the MAF for dirtiness. Clean if necessary. Maybe also test TPS.
