    i got a 94 ex coupe all stock auto d16z6. when i got it the headgasket was blown and a spark plug hole was striped. so i pulled the head and helicoiled the spark plug hole put a new headgasket and the car runs fine but it has no power at all the low end is horrible its slower then a dpfi motor. everything seems good on it the motor seems a tiny bit shakey at idle some times. any ideas?

    yes i know its not fast and im not looking to make it fast its going to be for sale. ive driven stock autos and i know there slow but this is not normal slow. ill check the timing now. i was also thinking maybe the timing belt moved when i had it apart.

    no it was the timing i think it might be off a tooth too or the belt is loose cause when i set the timing to the marks the dizzy is all the way it can go to the right and its slugish. then i adjusted it to where it reved good and the marks are off but it runs like it should.
