Did you replace the fuel pressure regulator? It sounds like it is dumping too much fuel into the engine. You may still have a problem with one of the sensors. I would suggest trying to read the engine codes if you can access them on this vehicle (it is not OBDII, I believe it is OBDI) and see what is showing up wrong. How is your catalytic convertor?

your problem could also be a bad seal in the engine block or the seal between the carb and the block is bad. either way, i think it sounds like oxygen is getting in the engine by other means then the air cleaner
