    I have seen the air flow meter give problems in that car held onto the air filter housing with two screws. A scan tool looking at sensor data on snap acceleration would prove it to be good or bad.

    Scan tool would want to be professional grade that shows live sensor data of grammes of air entering engine or you want to see load rise very quickly on snap acceleration.
