    i had a truck that did that and i had to clean off the mass air flow sensor. it gets like a buildup of crap on it just try to spray it off with some sort of carb cleaner or something. It might work.

    Could be a fuel starvation issue, could be a spark/ignition issue .... too many variables to determine what is causing the hesitation. Is your SES light on?

    I have a 6 speed manual can I turn off TCS? I always hear people saying they turned it off like they are just flipping a switch. Do I have one?

    On camaros it is ASR if you don't have that button then you don't have acceleration slip regulation.

    If you have no button, located near the shifter, you don't have it.

    AS for the issues surrounding the OPs problem, what tranny? How much abuse? Cause it sounds like you beat the crap out of the car. My guess is a slipping tranny and tired motor.

    Scan codes and due a complete tune up. maintenance is everything. When my buddy was looking for a ls1 we test drove a 99 a4 trans am with a 169,000 miles on it. The thing ran amazingly well. It would roast the tires off like crazy. I knew the owner and he had kept up with all maintenance and general repairs. Engine oil, trans oil, diff. oil, air filter, plugs, o2s, maf, etc...
