Could be, these are very sensitive units, any kind of crud in them really slows the response time down, also make sure the air tube from the sensor to the engine is sound, no leaks. You may want to do a compression on the engine, if it is getting low then you will also notice that take power will suffer.

Check all of your vacuum lines, PCV, and EGR valves as well. Take a water bottle and mist down your plug wires. If you have bad wires, you should notice a drastic change in how the engine runs. If done at night, you should see a spark jump from the bad wire.
