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.
