feeling the loss of power

I have a 93 sc, and when getting into the throttle (full throttle) I can feel it start to fall off (the power), but if I ease up on the throttle I feel it pick back up. I am assuming that this may be a lean condition. I have a check engine light that comes on every once and a great while, I have never had it checked out...Thoughts?

Good start would be...check the code. That's what the OBD system is there for.

Are you running 93 octane or higher? I would do as suggested above and clean the maf, but guessing its pulling timing. Go over to the passenger side and pull the boost plug and drive it and see if it does the samething.

Honor, Grace, and Dignity.....Do you remember these?
