Surprise surprise, with my luck how could I have ever thought this would be it! All vacuum lines are intact and reading about 18psi, timing is on the money and it is NOT the MAP sensor =( I would suspect internal problems but when it's cold, the car starts and idles smoothly. It MUST be electrical. Well i've changed the EGR, O2, MAP, vacuum relay solenoid, fuel filter, and i've checked all vacuum lines/readings, throttle pos. sensor, fuel pressure regulator, rebuilt the TBI, and the only trouble code that showed up was the MAP (before replacing). Well I'm flabbergasted! I will most likely be towing it to a dealership later this week to get a full diagnostic. I'll post what the problem was when I find out, but it'll probably be several days since I am busy with school finals/work.
