I think O2 sensor is a good guess. My 86 Supra, which is L-jetronic based, had the same exact symptoms (except for my mileage was still OK as far as I know). I checked, changed and adjusted EVERYTHING to no avail, until finally my friendly local mechanic said "It is the O2 sensor" (he diagnosed it over the phone for no charge - can't complain about that). Anyway, $35.00 later I had perfect (near zero) emissions scores. So if the O2 sensor is not too expensive, I would try it. On the other hand I have no specific knowledge of your car so maybe someone else has a more likely answer.
