Buick Mass Airflow Sensor

I have a 1989 Buick LeSabre T-Type with a 3.8
liter V6 FI engine. My problem is that my car
sometimes gets that rotten egg smell. I had my
catalytic converter replaced a while back in order
to pass DEQ, but it still smells bad on a
consistent basis. Also, it runs really, REALLY bad
when I do not warm it up for at least 5 minutes.
If I just get in the car in the morning and drive,
it seems like I have NO power at all. It will take
about 10 seconds just to get up to 20 MPH. The
funny thing about this is if I get in the car
without warming it up, and then floor it, I get a
HUGE surge of power which makes the tires peel out.
After that though, it goes back to being slow
until I drive it for about 10 minutes. I have
spoken with a few of my friends that know
"something" about cars, and they seems to feel that
it's my mass airflow sensor. If you have some
advice for me, I would greatly appreciate it.
