Start by checking over the air intake, clean filter, clean throttle body. Clean the MAF, check the throttle position sensor.

I spke with greg and he said he had to replace the MAP in order to get mine to run right so if you have one you can swap out it would be worth trying

90-92 Firebirds had a MAP sensor on the 3.1 V6.

Also Camaros 90-92 also had a MAP sensor on the 3.1 V6.
