Man, you really know your stuff @Brainbucket . My filter was above the right rear axle. The filter didn't seem too terribly bad but I still went ahead and replaced it anyways. I also replaced two really cracked/leaky vacuum hoses. The problem still persists and actually seems a little worse now (gotta double check if I got that filter in right. Knowing me it's probably in backwards or something )

Van still just feels really rough and wants to die out on acceleration. Feels weak/no power. I actually rented one of those fuel pressure testers from the autostore but have yet to figure out how to use it (good thing there's no time limit on how long I can keep it, hah) But once I figure that out I'll check fuel pressure.

All advice is definitely welcomed and appreciated!
