This could be an issue with a vacuum type of leak or a bad mass air flow sensor. Try unplugging the maf sensor, then fire it up and go for a drive. If it performs better, replace the maf sensor. If not, then I would check the fuel pressure and also check for possible vacuum leaks from the repair.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help and earn a 5 star rating from you.

I did disconnect the maf but it is the same

Ok, this sounds like there is a major vacuum leak someplace, it's the only thing I think would cause this since it was fine prior, if unplugging the maf didn't make any difference then it's not the issue. You may have missed something though.

I'm sorry, I am going to have to open this up for the other experts to look at.

Please don't rate or reply, it will lock it right back to me.
