I still have a heavy miss at idle but i will look into that later,......and it is throwing a code for the MAP sensor and when driving it cuts out at 3500 RPMS,.......no big deal,.....i will get to that tomorrow.

I want to Thank You very much for the help. I really do appreciate it.

certainly another lose or non connected wiring if its cutting at 3500. Its supposed to do that in park :-D to prevent over revving, if its doing it while driving the vehicle thinks its in park :-D check all the grounds.

just for giggles heat test the CAT with a laser. If its hotter at the front, than the back, its toast which could also cause the vehicle to cutt out around that RPM. Especially if you had a cracked manifold, that usually only happens with a massive overheat, which could be caused by a Converter :-D
