The engine doesn't rev accordingly with the throttle? As a first step I'd take the take the MAF/air filter tube (don't really know the stock setup at all) off the throttle body and have somebody else push the throttle while you watch the throttle body and see if there's a noticeable lag between the two things, I've never heard or read about that here but it sounds like the throttle cable could be binding or something on initial throttle tip in.

The throttle blade could also be sticking but I think you can usually feel that as a slight resistance in the gas pedal.
