    My new swap is bogging/studering when I hit the gas at a lower rpm. Its like its misfiring, because it has shaky acceleration. It started around 350 miles after i finished the swap. I am not throwing any codes. Any idea what this could be?
    My Setup:

    93' eg hatch
    obd1 b18c
    p72
    all stock except clutch, flyweel, test pipe (for now)

    its a spark issue, i had the same problem and it was my wires. but at a lower rpm it will sputter and bog, but at a higher rpm it runs good right? if yes, then its a spark issue!

    That it!!! I checked my plug wires over, and it looks like a little oil seeped through the 0-rings on the valve cover gasket.This must have shorted out the wire. Seems that I incorrectly seated them after changing my timing belt before the install. I went out, fixed that, and got new plugs. Everything is ok so far!
