    First off, the car works fine, only CEL for IACV which is not activating for some reason...

    When I slightly press the throttle (as if in a cruise or slowly accelerating), the boost gauge responds with a change in VAC and the S-AFC shows a change in % of throttle (indicating the throttle plate is opening). However, the car does nothing until I apply 10% or more throttle... Yes, the TPS is calibrated correctly, I can see it respond correctly on my S-AFC.

    Would the IACV be the reason for this? If I go into 1st gear and don't give it enough gas, the car begins to buck back and forth (cutting in and out). It's really a bitch when I'm in slow moving traffic or a slow cruise. I have to keep letting my foot on and off the gas because all it does is accelerate...

    ignition timing maybe?

    Check make sure the throttle plate is actually opening.

    Possibly clutch adjustment even though it doesn't sound like it.

    Oh yea.. the plate is definitely opening, because it responds fine when the car is not moving and the TPS shows voltage.
