It's probably the mass air flow sensor. This is located right near the air box and is in the fresh air pipe. Check the fuel pressure regulator vacuum line to make sure there is not any raw fuel in there. If there is no raw fuel in that vacuum line, try unplugging the mass air flow sensor and see if it takes the gas any better. let me know what happens there.
