del sol from hell


04-15-2014 02:04 AM by leebarbero

Main issue, car starts good and idles perfect when cold, I hear a loud loud loud sucking noise from my intake. Not normal trust me. I've cleaned the iac and still loud, no surging. Also once the car is fully warmed up I go to drive off in fuel t gear and all gears and engine bogs so bad. Wot it even backfires from intake. Then after I some time warmed up it just wants to die with any bit of throttle.

Let me give you some background

93 civic del sol d16y8 swap, rywire harness (tuck), new tps perfectly set, iac valve is factory, map sensor stock factory, grounds all redone, new injectors, new stock fuelfilter, stock fpr factory, new alt, new batt, s300 p28, no cel, b&m fuel pump. 

Recently did my head gasket, and timing belt, new oem valves, springs, retainers, timing looks on point, set timing with light. 

I've searched and I've heard it could the dizzy, new plugs gapped to.44, new cap n rotor, new coil and resistor.

I heard also tps, I have a question, when I unplug the tps nothing changes, could it be bad? 

I have no cat and the s300 is on a stock p28 tune.

There could be so much im missing. Im no electrician. Im a full time barber and right now I would be bringing this to a shop but I know how many qualified individuals are on here that can assist me.
Do you

Check the exhaust system for clogging.
