I have this exact same problem with my '88 2.3 (0.030" over). It's most
noticeable in first gear when I go to take off but it happens in any gear - I
give it a little gas and engage the clutch and it boggs the engine till I get
the gas pedal down to about 75%, then it feels like someone flipping on the
nitrous and it smokes the tires till you let off. I was starting to think that
boring the block thirty over messed up the fuel injection's mixture ratio but it
wasn't until a year after rebuilding it that this started happening. I like
Adam's input on the fuel pump, that sounds like something to look into.
