Default 98 GT missing out under load

i just bought a 98 gt ran fine for a week or so then i go out and start it. It idles fine and runs good as long as i dont try to give it much gas. it runs fine if i ease into it but if i get on it it misses out bad. the first thing i thought was coils or plug wires or plugs. Any help would be great thanks

Do the plug wires and a full tune up. Since you just bought the car ypu have no idea when the last time its been done. When i bought my car i was having similar issues. Turned out my plug wire was completly shot and was arching to the header causing stumbling under acceleration.
