1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse Front Wheel Drive Manual 149000 miles

When I accelerate from a stop the car most of the times accelerates fine. However if I am doing 35-40 mph and jump on it, it sputters while accelerating. I have installed a fuel filter, the spark plugs are pretty new, and I just installed a high performance coil. Still sputters. Can you give me a few more things I might check?
Do you
have the same problem?
