87 toyota acceleration problems

the car starts and idels but once it warms up it only spuders and chokes during acceleration.
Heavy stomping on the accelerator almost kills it, but slow and graduale prease can increase the RPM but there is no real power.
Car is throttle body fuel injected and has a new oxygen sensor, air filter, cap plugs and wires.
Any help would be a great assistance

After market cap and wires? coil wire inside cap goes bad almost always. Use only OEM Toyota. Also if over 100k coil tower develops traces that short out. Replace with OEM.
