Things to check are intake air leak, fuel pump or filter problems, secondary ignition malfunction ( exhause side plugs not firing)

If it's surging while cruising on flat level ground, your primary jets may be too small. If it's a Holley make sure the float level is set correctly.

Engine overheating will cause the anti-freeze to surge into the overflow tank. A blown head gasket will also cause the anti-freeze to surge into the overflow tank.

Take a look at to oxygen sensor. A dead sensor can cause your engine to surge and miss. If you live in the north were the fuel is oxygenated it happens more often. Something about O2 sensors being killed by oxygenated fuel.

If it is a newer vehicle you are probably hitting the rev limiter. The computer will cause the engine to cut out when it reaches a certain RPM too quickly.

The surge protector might not work properly because it works from its direct source, and if it is connected to an extended source, the extension cord, the surge will get too big for the surge protector to stop the surge immediately, but the extension cord allows it to travel and cause a bigger surge.

the surge the engine does when you first start it up is normal, the engine is built to do that to assist with warming up the system it should lower after 30secs or so.

Hurricanes cause most of their death and destruction through something called a storm surge. The storm surge results from the hurricane's winds forcing seawater onto land. This storm surge can lead to severe coastal flooding.
