I have a 88 lx civic with a d16z6 obd1 swap. I was driving the other nite and reved it to 4000rpm when it bogged out. it did this several times intermitantly. since driving the car for the first time I have always heard a popping noise from the exhaust. since it bogged out on me it sounds like the popping noise got louder. I should also add that when listening to the motor you can hear a ticking noise from the number one cylinder. a loud valve or something I am guessing. so I plan to do a valve adjust. my question is could this bogging @ 4000 rpm have something to possibly do with the popping noise? also will a valve adjust fix my ticking noise and the popping noise?
