Weak first gear acceleration

My 99 v6 has a total tune-up. Meaning i got new sparkplugs, wires, coilpack, i also put in a sr performance cold air intake. The car runs beautifully except for the fact that in first gear the car does not pull at all. Its like i giving gas just to hear the engine roar..... But barely move lol i was told it could be the computer needs adjustment as to the power distribution with gas . HELPP?

Fuel filters are often neglected, some people never change them.

That fuel filter theory sounds reasonable bc my car has 125k miles and the fuel filter hasnt been touched in a couple years.
