well this has been bothering me for a while now, only now and then I will jump on the pedal and the engine just "chokes". during normal driving its fine, idel is fine. what I belive it to be is, the stock pipe that come off the PCV valvehad brooke so I put in a peice of hose and the hose is colapsing, due to the vacum pressure. do you guys think this is my problem? if you have any other ideas let me know please.

That very much could be the problem, I would get that fixed. But you might want to disconnect your negative battery cable for about ten minutes to reset your ecu, you may be having mixture problems.

for some reason its like you can stomp the hell out of the gas but it has like a 2 or 3 second delay before it picks up the feed and accelerates its a pain in the ass, its best (if you race often) if you have this problem just get a good 25 mph troll going and then go for it.
