ever since I bought my car it seems that it has lack of power, it has 75,000 miles on it- the only things that are done to it are a slp lid & flowmaster cat back exhaust, beside that stock. When I hit the gas is it supposed to burn the tires? Just feels like something is not right. Now, since I bought it the plugs have not been changed (don't know if the car still has original plugs in) it threw a code (o2 censor) but still had the lack of power issue b4 that, fuel filter was changed- any thoughts?

Plugs/wires/fuel filter/change PCV valve/ clean maf/change front 02 sensors.
If its throwing 02 codes most likely its the cats clogged up.. change them since you have emissions

My car has 150k on it and I changed plugs/wires/coilpacks. Made a huge difference, but kind of pricey. Could give it a shot?

you have a ws6 so you have the wider tires 275's, my SS has the same, and i have good tread.
that being said, when i mash it in 1st, i do not spin the car just takes off, now when i powershift into second it does break loose sometimes
from what ive seen the z28's and non-ws6's will burn the tires in first due to having 245's rather than 275's
idk just a thought
75 k isnt really alot of miles.

The first guy had it right. I cleaned the MAF same car and year as you and it worked wonders.
