I've experienced this problem before I think it was a vacuum leak in one
of the hoses near the throttle body. The best way to check this is to
pressurize the intake manifold with approx 15 psi and spray soap on the
suspected areas and watch for bubbles.To pressurize the intake make an
adapter to fit in the hose that attaches to the intercooler.
