bog like you would press the gas and it wouldnt really accelerate........you would feel a power loss....turn your idle down to about 750+ or - 50rpm.......check your timing......is your ECU throwing any codeS?

changing the idle would put the car into the spec that it should be at.....also.....that might fix your problem....what is your timing set at?
