    I have a 91 CRX with a ZC engine. It has GREDDY header and brandless intake, other thatn that everything else is stock.
    My question is, why does my second gear lag?:confused::mad:
    If I am driving at speed limit it goes in just fine, but if I am at a complete stop and try to take off my 2nd gear will lag when going from 1st to 2nd:mad::mad:.

    PLZ help a nu-bee

    What do you mean lag? Does it just feel like it lost power or something?

    Have you checked your cam and ignition timing? Belt may have jumped a tooth.

    If I understand the question correctly, you are trying to go from a complete stop by using second gear? Every car will lag if you try to go from a complete stop and put it in second, third or fourth gear.
