Ford Escort Engine

I have a 96 Ford Escort 1.9L engine in a race car. The engine is new. Has about 200 miles on it. It is low in power. Meaning that my shift point from 4th to 5th has move about 500 feet down the track. We replaced: Fuel pump, fuel filter (and checked fuel pressure 30ftlbs at idle), O2 sensor, fuel injectors, fuel injector pressure regulator, alternator, relays (ignition and fuel pump). Checked timing belt and MAS. Both looked OK. Does anyone have a suggestion?

Mistakes do happen...but are you that scatter-brained that you forgot you posted the exact same thing the day before??? If so, see your doctor....as for an apology, I never gave one, therefore there is nothing for you to accept other than the fact that you should be paying attention to what, where, and when you post......remember, THINK, TYPE, SUBMIT.
