Clean out the throttle bore/plate and look for vacuum leaks before engine gets to operating temperature-also check fuel pressure-let me know

What is the throttle bore / plate. Is it where the throttle body meets with the intake manifold?

Is this a TBI or CPI fuel injection? -On a CPI Is where the air intake tube from the aircleaner meets the throttle body-behind it you will see a butterfly. On a TBI its right under the air-cleaner

This is a TBI the air cleaner is on top. I cleaned out using carb cleaner spray and inline fuel injector additive.

Recheck the IACV, TPS and look for vacuum leaks-also rev's between shifts could mean the clutch slipping
