Engine Performance problem
2002 Ford F150 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 80,200 miles

2002 4.6 AOD 2WD. 80,200. Recently replaced plugs, and fuel filter. Had vacuum hose replaced not long ago. Idles smoothe, engine runs strong, but when I 'Get on it' it just seems to be lacking somewhere. Any pointers towards getting back lost horsepower?

Catalytic converter.
Fuel injectors dirty/sticking.
Mass airflow sensor/Airflow meter.
Throttle position sensor.
Crankshaft position sensor
Knock sensor
Manifold absolute pressure sensor.
EGR Valve

Foul/defective spark plugs.
Open spark plug wires.
Ignition coil/Coil packs defective.
