Fuel issue

I have a 2000 sivlerado 1500 5.3. I have 126000 on it. I have noticed over the last couple weeks when I get in the high rpms the truck hesitates a little like its not getting enough fuel. When I punch it from a dead stop it lacks power at first. Also if the truck sits for around 12 hours and I start it up it acts like its not getting enough fuel at first. Any ideas any known issues? I have already done a tune up and changed the fuel filter 2 months ago. Thank you.

Besides the Seafoam through the gas tank I would remove the throttlebody and clean both sides with Seafoam spray and a soft toothbrush. Your 2000 has a IdleAirControl (IAC) valve screwed on the side of the throttlebody. I would remove this and also clean with the Seafoam spray. Seafoam also has a relatively new spray can with a hose to clean the intake manifold. Won't hurt to do this also. You can see all the "how to" videos on there website.
