Could be the cat converter is stopped up. Loosen the exh pipe or take out the oxygen sensor and see if it runs better, if it does it needs to be replaced. If it does not improve, check fuel pressure under load.

SOURCE: when i go to full throttle my car bogs out at half

Usually, this means the compression is low in the engine. Check for vaccum leaks on the hoses. You might need a tuneup, spark plugs and wires. Check your air filter in case it is clogged. A clogged fuel filter perhaps as well. If you haven't changed these in awhile, might want to do so. If you have a check engine light on, a code would be helpful. It may point you in the right direction.

No one has an idea about the 1995 mustang

Half throttle or less?Then the demands for full throttle are missing,How is the air filter?Check the air filter it may be plugged.And at more open throttle you need more fuel. You may want to service the fuel filter,At full open throttle the vehicle needs to breath and it also needs to exhale.These two component are just the start for a function inspection If these two serviceable componenet are met,and you still have this problem we can move from this and remedy the situation form a plugged exhaust to a TPS having a bad swipe.Also try a airflow sensor cleaning with the MAF (Mass air flow)

1995 mustang will only take half throttle without bogging, half throttle or less runs like a top

better change the fuel filter first,if no help,possibly a backpressure problem,like a clogged cat.Exhaust note would sound like a "jet" if the exhaust was plugged.
Injected? if so clean the maf also

My 1984 gmc with a carborated 350 starts runs and idles fine but bogs at half throttle wont rev up will drive at nearly an idle but any sort of gas it bogs and almost dies i used carb cleaner yet it still...

it could be a fuel blockage or it could be that the main running jets in the carby are blocked you may have to remove the carby & strip it down & blow it out with compressed air, but check for a fuel blockage first........hope this helps......cheers.
