Driving me nuts!!! Has plenty of power

and idles ok,but with the throttle just barelly open (about 14-1500 rpm) it surges BAD!
Changed IAC and MAP,no change.Thought of fuel pump,but it would manifest itself at higher speeds/loads.Spark plugs would also act up through entire range I guess.When it surges like that (light throttle) and take foot of gas,it may occasionally die...wtf?

Cap/rotor change? Maybe fuel filter?

Also check all of your vacuum lines. Sounds like you might also have a leak. Poke around with some starter fluid.

All about that unibody life.
