My XR8 AU II 5.0L ute seems to be starving for fuel under acceleration... i have run a fuel system cleaner through it, then put new plugs in, new air filter and new fuel filter... I have never had anything to do with fords before so any help or suggestions would be great :|

You could get them swapped over for a set that has already been reconditioned. Less down time that way.
