     If it continues after the O2 sensor change, pull the
     codes and see if anything appears.  A bad hall sender
     has been known to cause surging in the V8Q's also.
     I forgot to connect the distributor when I was working
     on the V8Q once, to my amazement the car ran fine, just
     surged a little.  I still haven't found anyone who has
     an explanation for why it still ran, a few theories though.
