wot throttle problems

when i floor it, the car runs terrible, i let off and go half throttle it runs fine, i thought it was tranny slipping, but that's not the case, anybody knows what this might be, i was thinking something with TP sensor , no idiot lights on either. anybody might have experianced this problem or knows what it might be it's been doing this since i bought it now i want to fix it.

thats exactly how my car reacted to bad plugs and wires. wires are cheap and at 53000 you might as well replace them cause they might be origonal still

its also possible you may have an injector(s) that isnt able to keep up with the load at wot....this could be due to a short, leaking or clogged injector......but still, dont leave the fuel pump out....although they usually whine at ya before going out.....at least my mustangs did.
