Engine Performance problem
1990 Eagle Talon 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Manual 81000 miles

Doesnt happen all the time, but most of the time. When I gas it the car almost stalls. I can feel it hold the boost and then after a bit it kicks when it catches. I took it in and the mechanic said he thinks its my mass airflow sensor so I replaced that and it decreased the frequency but it still does it often, I now have no idea. The mech checked the fuel pressure and that was fine so yeah. PLEASE HELP!
