Any check engine light or codes?
Does it only happen at certain times, ie. hot vs cold engine, only when it rains, etc.
Filter wouldn't hurt. Might be plugs and/or wires too.

Nope wires and plugs were fine 6 months ago no lights
I think its the filter or the electric pump, feels starved
on hard acceleration, if you back off the pedal it starts picking up again, ill throw it on a snap on computer saturaday and check the pressure, miles is about 55k

idle is great runs fine , you would not know unless you punched it
to pass, worse in this colder weather, I know colder means more fuel,

We just started a warming trend here in St Louis. It should be on it's way to you this weekend. You'll still need to wear your mittens though.
