The guy I normally took my cars too said the smoke test will run me $100...not a bad deal, but I wanted to see what other shops had out there. Thanks for the info man...and sorry, I just realized the way I posted that seemed like I was kinda asking you about the issues. Nevertheless, thanks!
I would go with cleaning the MAF sensor first and see if that fixes the problem. You can actually do your own boost/vacuum leak test. I think there is a DIy in the DIY section.
