HEY GUYS NEED SOME HELP

The engine is running a bit rich and will not catch up with a throttle
if i hold it at 1500rpm and rev it up (quick) it boogs and wants to die
if i do it slowly its fine.
Which makes it a big deal if I shift from gear to gear at above mid throttle i lose all power and have to wait for the engine to catch up

Any advices would be a lot of help

how do you know for certain that you're running rich? but, as above, check your pipes for a small leak (and it will be small and a bit hard to find - anything easily spotted in terms of pipe leaks, and your car would be nearly undriveable).

nothing that i can find

(it was relay bad before i posted the message here. I had a leak and it w extremely rich. its better now but still lagging)
ok, now what you want to look for is a crack - stays closed under gentle airflows but if you push it, the crack opens and you run rich. I had one and it baffled me until I stumbled across it, and only because it was in the engine bay. Had it been one of the under-bumper pipes, I'd never have run across it.

Often the big flexible hose that connects to the intakeplenum has a crack. Otherwise check the intake gaskets if they arent leaking.
