You have an automatic? The auto shifting in an automatic Celi is really nasty slow. You have to anticipate when you need it to shift & shift early.

if it's a 6spd check to make sure youre throttle cable is tight and not super loose. that would do it too.

^^^ive heard that auto GTSs choke when you give a lot of gas suddently.

i havent experienced it on my 2003 GTS auto, i suppose it's problem on early models.

Dont go to the Dealer to check your MAF - clean it yourself. Its easy. Check out the installs section.
