I have changed MAF and O2 Sensor. Blew cigar smoke into booster hose into intake to area to detect leak. I changed intake and throttle gaskets. This happens noticeably when approaching a half tank or when driving for long period.

    I forgot to include, I did go into intake and replaced fuel pressure regulator off spider injector unit. I replaced fuel pump and tuneup. The runs good just occasional rough idle during when car gets hot. I did do a smoke test by following "Scotty Kilmer" instructions off of "YouTube".
