Maybe the knock detector is picking up a knock. Try some better gas.

When you push the gas pedal to the floor the throttle body will open all the way. This will most certainly "bog" the motor until the engine speed can catch up to the amount of air that is being introduced into the engine. This is normal. Unless you are in first gear or at a high enough RPM in another gear,this will always happen.

I'm already running 93 octane, and its only a stock 305. Somebody told me it might be the throtle position sensor. What do you think? It doesn't matter if i'm at a high RPM or witch gear i'm in ,any other ideas?

a faulty t.p.s. could cause ths prob.also
simular problems have been found in the elec.
fuel pumps. if possible install a mech. fuel
pressure gauge and check pressure while this
take place. Good idea to have new fuel filter
installed before you start testing
