I'd look at the fuel filter first - because it's the easiest and cheapest to remedy. If it's plugged up, a sudden change in demand for fuel won't be met. Dirty injectors could be part of the problem, as well. Make sure the air filter is okay. Also, Mitsubishi recommends the timing belt be changed at 100K miles. If the belt is old, it may have slipped a little and altered the timing. If the timing is off a little it can cause hard starting or poor acceleration and sometimes, detonation. Good luck.
