Re: 2.8 TBI engine lacking power

Here are a few things I can guess about your motor...
1.) It's old and may need some major work. Are you blowing oil away at a fast rate? Valves knocking all over the place? When did you have the valves adjusted last?
2.) you have improper gearing on larger tires. Especially on the smaller v-6's, and four cylinders, putting larger tires on a stock set of gears is going to rob you of power...
3.) I would check to see if you can have your injectors cleaned. They have a cool solution they run through the EFI and it works wonders. I don't know how many folks in your area do it. You just have to look around.

Anything I'm missing here?
