starts ok. Idle is good but stalls or boggs down on accel. F/p regulator replaced, plugs replaces, mass air flow disconnected and it ran worse.

Get a can of starting fluid and spray it in the air intake, while you are manually opening up the throttle.

See if you can get the RPMs to come up, if it does then you know you have a fuel delivery problem.
