So Ive got a 94 GSR MT 2dr. Mods include, CAI, headers and 2.5" pipes, cat deleted(along w cat o2 sensor)(I didnt do that) and aftermarket clutch.


My car picked up a 'sputter' at low rpms(3-5k) a while ago. I finally narrowed it down to the distributor. I got a new one, but now when I put it in perfect timing, it runs like a dog on heroin. I have to advance the timing all the way(via distributor) to get it to run anywhere close to what it should. Ive replaced-


Sparkplugs- NGK iridium


Sparkplug wires


Full distributor,+ cap, rotor, coil


Injectors


It tends to run like crap when the motor is hotter. I Have a new o2 sensor, I just havent had the time to install it yet, but i dont think that is the root of the problem. Its weird, it just acts sluggish and sometimes the torque is just completely unavailable.


Hope I didnt forget anything, dunno.


Only thing I can think is maybe its a sensor problem. I just dunno. Any info would be awesome! Thanks!

Bump. Having such problem really gives anyone a headache. Have you tried to gap the sparks plug? Or you might really need to advance the timing of your distributor. Good luck.
