Purplefade is on a distinguished road
80stech is likely on to it, the V8s are notorious for failing VSS, one test would be to start it and let it idle for an extended period of time, something like 10 minutes, like you were waiting in the driveway for tour kid to put on and tie their shoes (mine are slow as molasses [emoji12]) and then give the gas pedal a good poke. Not the end all be all test by any means, but if you get a huge plume of white smoke, it will tell your a lot.

You’ll have guys argue that failing CCV valves can cause this as well, they’re pretty easy to access and a simple check. Pop the CCV caps off and check the orange “gasket” for rips, if they are ripped, replace those first, but I doubt it solves yours problem permanently. (Unfortunately)
