S6 "sputtering" puzzle

Things point towards manifold pressure transducer, or its connecting 
hose. Mind you, faulty transducer should produce codes. Other cause 
could be loose clamp on exhaust M to WG hose, although this usually 
produces cut out rather than just spluttering, but it gives no codes. If 
you haven't already, frequency valve circuit should be also checked.

Good luck,
