Hmm maybe a timing issue? It only takes one tooth on the cam gears to make her run funny, if not at all. I would start with one system at a time. Rule out the easiest first. Then work from there. My first guess would be to check fuel and electrical.

Wow, does it do it when you let the clutch out? Mine bucks in second gear when shes cold. I just keep the rpm's a little higher to fight it.

Check the wiring from the sensor to the main harness, check the crank harness as well. Can fall down and rub the axle and cause this problem.

if you didn't do this then this should solve your problem almost instantly. did you use a cam sensor from the dealership or from a parts store like advance, autozone or say o reillys? if its from a part store that may well be your problem.
