2000 uk spec wrx surging under 3000 rpm

Just got a 2000 uk spec wrx, i,ve noticed that up to 3000 rpkm in any gear it surges very slightly
Over 3000 is ok any ideas what it could be and how to cure it

cheers

I noticed this the other night at minor acceleration under choke conditions that it slightly pulsed the acceleration.

i,ve been reading up about this and its a common fault on the my99 and 00 models.
Most people seam to think its a MAF problem however some have said that changing back to 95oct fuel fuel helps, others say its the knock sensor, plugs, leads etc....the list goes on!

why cant things just be simple
