Unhappy No power whatsoever. 45 mph tops.

Guys I have a 93 lx 4cyl 2.3 auto with 112000 miles on it that is driving me nuts. It takes 2-5 tries before it actually will stay running and when it does finally stay it vibrates like crazy. When I go to drive it if I don't hold it to the floor I go nowhere. I can hold the gas pedal all the way to the floor and might be able to reach 45-50 mph in a mile. I have replaced fuel pump twice,filter three times,maf,iat,tps,plugs,wires and checked timing. I am coming over from Chevy so please be gentle to me. It has me about to just give up and sale it. Which I would hate to do cause I love this car. Please help in any way possible. Thank any and all who help. Also it has no knocking,smoking,or overheating at all. It also has straight exhaust so no cats. Thanks.
