    Hi everyone Just acquired a 95 hatch cx with a b7 block and pm3-13 head and she smokes like a chimney i know it burns a tad of oil and no coolant being burned but it will leave you in a smokescreen under easy throttle and I'm getting a really bad bogging at lower rpms and ill get a cel once it warms up. When its not bogging she doesn't blow that much smoke lol I'm going z6 with boost soon so I just want this thing to not choke people out will dailying lol please ask I fan answer any questions I can, thanks for any responses

    replace the PCV valve. This is a common item to go, and it's $15 bucks at auto zone. Do that before you start ripping apart rings. lol

    Well Ive already swapped in a z6 head and lessened the smoking must've been the valve seals and the only code I've ever gotten is code 1 for o2 and it still getting the stumble in the lower revs when its on I'm still running a po6 I'm not sure if it will still do it once I get the p28 so well find out then

    I can solve your problem.
    First, get to 88mph...if something great doesn't happen....replace your flux capacitor.

    I figured out that the Ecu is looking for a 2 wire o2 and my car has already been wired for a 4 wire so hopefully thep28 will stop that from happening and I'm still running b7 wires so some little things before the Ecu lol

    Allrite boys I've been trying to figure out my exact timing situation and I've got the cam and crank at tdc and my adjustable gear set 4.5 degrees advanced is this right or should it be retarded im thinking this might be the cause of my stumbling and now the car is idling at 2 to 3 grand I'm hoping just a vac leak not to fun onyour DD lol

    Set timing to normal 16 degrees. Dont mess with the cam gears until all problems are gone.
