telstar TX5 V6

hi guys,

i have a telstar ghia TX5 1992. V6 5spd manual. Just bought it like 3 weeks ago.. i noticed that the car is very sluggish off the mark. takes a lot of time to pick up... :(
does she just need a really good tune up? am thinking of putting it in tomorrow. get the oil, filter, sparks changed. electronic tune.
any other thing that i could do? its poor on mileage too.. the tyre pressures are good, all new tyres. should i change the fuel filter..?

i thought this car should fly but at the moment its so bad:(

any suggestions would be highly appreciated..
thanks mate

Thieving sumbitches may run for now-but only for a while - coz one day, lying in their beds and having nowhere to play, something even bigger's gonna come back to make them pay (KARMA)
