I had a similar problem on V8Q #2, problem was resolved by adjusting the
Throttle Position Sensor.  I use the "listen for the click" and tighten
method, always worked well for me.  I had gone as far as checking fuel
pressure, residual pressures and a few other things, all was normal. 
Give it a try, I was actually rather surprised (read that happy) that it
solved the problem.  Beware the philister (philips) screws, they are made
of Brishitium, have some 8mm bolts ready to replace them.

Hit any key to continue, or any other key to quit.
