Fuel filter is probably blocked. Replace that first, if problem still exists i would then be looking at the fuel pump. But i'd put money on thefilter.

I'd check for a blocked cat converter. Prime candidate.

+1 for the blocked cat, had the same problem. local ford dealer diagnosed it as a fuel pump/regulator issue so decided to do mpfi conversion... turns out there was no problem but the blocked cat hehe

... -1 for ford service

Again - check the cat! My car wouldn't rev past 4500rpm. It was diagnosed as other things until it was dicovered the cat had collapsed. A lot of other little problems were solved once it was replaced too.
