98 Gt stutters while picking up speed?

Hey everyone, i have a 98 Gt with 128k miles on it. For awhile whenever i step on it to accelerate, it will make a bubbling noise almost like its being restricted. When turning on the car it will make the same noise when it is warming up. The best way the describe it is that is stutters while picking up speed. My guess it is fuel related but not sure. help!

I'd check the coil packs and the spark plugs. I had the same issue a few weeks ago at low rpm if I floored it my car really struggled. Turned out to be one of my coil packs had a loose connection. We fixed that issue now its back to the usual ass-ripping acceleration especially with the 4.10s

Already have checked the coil packs and everything seems to be fine. Also just changed wireset for the injectors and the fuel filter

Do you have a CEL? I had a problem with my 98GT that was kind of the same. Turned out to be the plug wires. You could try simple cheap things that wouldn't hurt trying like fuel filter, checking plugs and the gap on them. Most guys on here talk about running the gap a little tighter than stock specs and seem to notice a good difference. I have been running a step colder (TR6) on plugs since about this time last year. I had them for a turbo build and ended up selling the kit. So when I did a tune up I just gapped those plugs and threw them in. Never have had a problem out of them.
