confused 1996 probe 2.0 base stick shift breaking up under acceleration

This probe is a mini stock race car that races on dirt. We have changed or replaced the spark plugs, plug wires, distributor, egr valve, tps, icv, fuel rail, we cleaned the injectors, and put in a new fuel pump NONE OF THIS HELPED!

The car will sit in my garage and idle perfectly, but as soon as it's put under the load of acceleration, it breaks up and starts spitting and sputtering!

Obviously, this must be an electrical issue - PLEASE HELP!!

Have you checked for codes? Autozone and O'reilys will check for free. Try it with the MAF unplugged after you check for codes otherwise it'll set a code and confuse the issue.

Did you remove the O2 sensors?
