190e 16v surging

Hi guys
Myself and a friend have an identical problem with our cosworths.
Both intermittently will surge under hard acceleration, back off the throttle and apply again slowly and they will rev out fine.
This only happens when you put your foot down and accel hard? Any suggestions.

I had noticed my car to surge under heavy acceleration only when the engine is cold. Once it heats up, it runs great. It used to stumble on hard acceleration all the time just like your symptoms. I changed the plugs, distributor cap, and rotor with a fuel injector cleaner in a full tank of gas once a month and now it drives like a charm.

Sometimes the simplest solution is the key to most of our problems.
