98 Chrysler Sebring V-6

Just acquired a Sebring w/ 2.5 V-6 to put in my 28 Model A. Just to be sure everything started out good I replaced the timing belt, car, rotor wires and fuel punp.
My problem is that when it is cold it runs good but when it gets hot it stumbles all over itself when you jab the gas. If you ease into the gas in neutral its fine as long as you don't stomp on it. Put it under a load in gear and forget about it.
What do you guys think? I don't want to pull the engine package until everything is running good. The computer throws no codes.

Jerry

Could be the O-2 sensor or clogged cat.

98 Sebring

Found the problem. The coil was arcing in the distributor. Put in a new coil and it runs as sweet as can be.
Thanks for hekp.
