So, didn't end up trying to replace the pcv hose or anything crazy. Picked up the dpfe and luck me it was the wrong one. Looks like another trip to autozone tomorrow

PVC was what it was. Was collasped where it connects to the IM. I did a quick fix for now and put a clamp where it is collapsing to hold it open. Smooth all the way to 6k rpm now. Ty Freemind

Just had similar problem with my car. PCV pipe had a 1 inch split in it causing the engine to recieve unmetered air. You should find your fuel economy will rise nicely.

PS> Normally need to reset ECU after PCV or running issue to allow ECU to relearn "good" running values.

That's fine I can disconnect my battery while I change it whenever I get around to it. Being a broke student doesn't help any
