Default my 1987 2.3l is SOL please help!

My 1987 lx 2.3 is givving me torouble, It is hard to start, and once its started, it idles fine, but if I give it any gas it either dies, sputters, or backfires. I have already replaced the timming belt, spark plugs, throttle position sensor, cleaned all the intake parts, and set the timming advance to oem settings. I am now at a loss, and would like to avoid dealer diagnostics testing. Any thoughts?
