Talking 95 Chev Van G20 Poor pickup

My 95 chev G20 van, has poor pickup. The trans was rebuilt and now shifts in all gears. If I start out slow it will gradually get up to speed. If I put it to the floor I get what I call a flat spot ( nothin) let off a little some power comes back. Up grade I have to pepper it alot. Midas said the converter was good. I have replaced the air filter, plugs and a throttle sensor. Any help would be greatly appreciate.
Thanks
Jim

Is it a carb or fuel injection? with a carb, you could possibly get the throttle body spacer which would increase the performance and most likely get rid of that flat spot. With Fuel Injection, it could be that one of the injectors is plugged up a little causing it to not allow enough fuel to get through for the amount of air, thereby causing you to run really lean. Or of course your fuel pump sucks

in 1995 chevy had pretty much done away with carburators.
