cold start it'll idle at 1k rpm then go back down to 600 after the engines warms. Idle will also bounce a bit after near redline.

stomp test revealed a lambda, but that was from the sea form I did a few weeks ago...after I reset it there have been no more codes

Doing more research on this, it has to be a vacuum leak I missed.

If I put my foot down, I instantly experience a loss in power (sometimes almost complete loss). But if I accelerate normally then there's no problem. I am thinking the high pressure at full acceleration is opening up a hole and keeping it open, while at normal acceleration there isn't enough pressure to get the hole open, so I don't experience its problems.

And Im thinking the reason I lose power is the MAF is registering no air flow so the computer is cutting the fuel, which explains the serve power loss?
