What is the time duration of the .flv file? If it's more than 3 minutes, 30 seconds, then try an .flv that is less that length and see if it works any better.
sadly the videos I am working to chop from is two hours in length. I found I can speed up the video somewhere between 800%-825% but it is going to take me a long time to syc and then slice. Any ideas on what I might be doing wrong at the import level?
My recommendation would be just not to use that file. Premiere seems to be centered around camera formats, not final delivery web formats. A consumer editor may work better for what you're trying to do. (Or even Flash, for that matter.)

I'm not sure you're doing anything wrong. I had the exact same issue with Camtasia files that I was using for some tutorials.
Is there any way to get the source file before it was converted to .flv?
Do you have the entire Creative Suite? If so, set up a dynamic link to an AE comp that contains the .flv file. IIRC, that worked for me before I decided to edit the tutorials in AE anyway. The only potential issue I see is that the processing overhead for a 2-hour dynamically-linked comp may exceed what your system (or Pr) can handle.
