Car starts and idles good but give gas and it falls on its face and sometimes it back fires from intake. If you drive it slowly it will get faster and faster when you get to around fifty mph it well let you give about 3/4 the pedal.
Do you

Scan for codes first then check fuel pressure with a gauge auto parts rent it. It can be either low fuel pressure or an ignition/basic engine problem. Should be 41-47 psi key on only.

You can probably rent both of those gauges at auto parts also I think if you use a volt meter it will flash volt meter by hooking ot A&B of aldl. You can also check ignition system like ohms on plug wires 5000 per foot and check plugs for junk between electrodes and or black/oily.

Your fuel pressure is to low for one thing I gave you the readings in my reply and they must meet the minimum number so your pump is probably bad. Try putting volt meter in a&b if the gauge bounces that will do the same thing as dash light for codes. Pressure for fuel is taken with key on only. If you get codes then get back to me with numbers. Also maf is self cleaning so you don't need to do that

Try what I said with volt meter to check for codes your positive on volt meter will go into A slot and black into B slot if you get any codes pulled then get back to me with them. Also check resistnance of wires 5000 ohms per foot and check spark plugs for being blackened etc. Finally check compression all around.
