    Is the check engine light on?? If it is pull the code and fix whatever problem it is. If there is no check engine light, make sure your ignition timing is good.

    That sounds like the exact problem I am having with my lsvtec I just put in, it is brand new and lots invested in it. did you do any upgrades, pistons, cams, ect. cause I am getting told it is in the tuning and that I need to keep it parked until I get it retuned on a dyno or another round of wideband. just my $.02. let me know if you figure anything out.

    mess w/ your ecu lately? new injectors? mine are stickin. when the car hasnt warmed up yet, and i'm maintaining speed at around 3000 rpm, it'll lose power and start like, sputtering. i think it's only 1 injector cuz it's minor, but once you hit the gas some more, it smooths right back out. idk if that helps any.
