not sure if it's relevant but i had the same problem with a 4.3 chev, changed every sensor & o2 & It would surge, turned out to be the coolant temp sensor was sending the wrong message to the computer when it heated up. 20.00 fix after spending 200.00+ on stuff it did not need.

wasn't Crank position sensor....
going to try coolant temp sensor, air temp sensor (one in manifold).
Maybe its my chip for m50 intake, 91 fuel and 7000 rpm? I guess I could eliminate this possibility by driving with stock chip again...just been too busy with another e36

You're just throwing money away. Do some diagnostic work and you'll spend a fraction of the time and money.

It's not chip I've got down to temp sensor or air mass
