Ive got a 1994 acura integra LS that doesnt seem like its got all the 'umph' it could have. I had a 1993 integra LS and it was much more zippy than this one, is there a difference between the generations that would have caused this. It seems like the same 1.8 liter in both, but thats why im asking.

Do you
have the same problem?

Just as a quick thought, was one of them a VTec engine and the other not? That can make a difference. The car at hand I might suggest a timing check, a look at the plugs to see how they are burning, etc.

No they were both non-vtec. I was thinking about the timing from what all ive read about it. Also I had put iridium plugs in the last car, I wasnt aware that it would have made such a difference though.

Better spark = better performance

So along that line the spark timing is essential.
