    I have a 91 crx si with a b18a1. Now whenever im driving it hard it starts to cut out or something, the lights go off for like a split second and the whole car jerks like its trying to kill. what can this be? and what do i do to fix it

    Look at the battery and make sure there's nothing shorting out. I had the same problem and then I found out the intake pipe was shorting between the positive terminal and the chassis. This would kill all electrical and the car would stutter.
