ek mini me motor problem need help

i have a el head on a 97 ek block with a obd1 ecu with the conversion harness so the iacv is hooked up properly and it doesnt look for knock sensor everything is hooked up properly but for some reason when i release the gas pedal after reving above 2500 the rpm drops really low bogs for a second and goes back up to idling sometimes it even stall ...does any body have any ideas what it might be ... could it be the PCV? i wanna get some opinions before i start trying things let me know please any body also with this past experience would help thanks

why the hell are you just naming parts?

My first guess would be a vacuum leak. Listen with a stethoscope.. or spray brake clean on the hoses.

i tried with some silicone lube on the hoses no bogging no change to idle so i dont think its a vacumm leak do you have any other ideas could it have to do with the dizzy?

why would you use silicone lube when u were instructed to use something with flamable properties...use wd40 or brake clean or something else thats readily flamable and your idle should rise, not bog down

im with matt.

what the hell would silicone lube do? except gum the **** out of your engine, o2 and cat?

Heres a tip, cover the iacv a bit so if there is a vacuum leak, it will be easier to source.
