    i have a b16 in my 95 hatch. when i drive my car, sometimes my speedometer dont work properly and sometimes it works perfectly. when the speedometer does work, my car feels like shit. sometimes when im driving, as i accellarate (when the speedometer goes crazy) i can see the rpm drop to about 0rpm and it makes my car bogg and not move. so i accellerate slow and shift into other gears to just get it moving.
    i have no idea whats going on, please help with any suggestions!!

    i just changed cap and rotor from a gsr distributor. stock usdm p30 ecu running a stock jdm b16. cels i have are 10, 20, 41.

    the first thing to do is to fix your CEL's. you have wiring problems up the ass.

    10- IAT Sensor (Intake Air Temperature)
    probably not wired right...

    20- Electrical Load Detector
    probably not wired right...

    41- Primary Oxygen Sensor - Heater
    bad sensor? didn't do a 4-wire conversion if needed?

    find the cels and fix them first, then run it, check your alternator, and see if it's getting power, could be numerous things, and yes it can react like that.
