I can only assume that the car is misfiring,could be bad plugs,bad injector,s,out of timing,or the car has been ran hot in the past and have a blown intake gasket or head gasket leak.

I have new plugs, wires, and its timed right ha it did sit for a year thats why i was thinking maybe the injectors ha could the distributor maybe play a role in not getting all the power? Ha

Have you replaced the fuel filter,and got all the old gas out of it,this will make it weak running.

All so check the internal coil,and pick up module,in the distributor.
