Stumbling from idle to about 2900?


I did a few mods now I am stumbling from idle to about 2900rpm. Its not terribly slow but you can feel/hear it has a small stumble, like if it may be lean, until 2900 and then it pulls all the way up. Just looking to see if anyone here has any ideas.

Rig: 89 XJ
Rebuilt motor about 60k on it (Renix FI and Renix Head)
Borla header heat wraped
2.5" cat/catback
99+ intake manifold
Injectors from a 98
Fuel pressure right now 57psi trying to make up for lean condition
Taurus fan swap
Map adjuster set to 5.56 volts
Homebrew CAI w/relocated IAT sensor


For Sale: 89' Limited w/ Renix. Performance:Custom Cold Air Intake, Air Temp Conversion, Map Adjuster, Throttle Body Conversion Bored, 99+ intake manifold, 98 injectors w/ 99 fuel rail, bumped fuel pressure, Borla Wrapped Header, 2.5 in exhaust header back, open loop cooling, electric fan conversion, SS brake lines, 96+ brake booster and still getting 20 mpg highway

How long has it been since the fuel filter has been replaced? Hopefully it's something as simple as that.
