kik Your Cat. could be clogged. If it is the only effect you would get is that you have no high end power. Try disconnecting to see if that's the problem.

mameyj my 87 was doing the same thing, I checked my timing and it was at about 14 degrees, set it at 9 and it feels better, revs up a little faster not to much but definitely better. Its really easy to check so its worth a shot.

skiidoorider14 I was thinking that it may be caused by my exhaust because when i first got it the exhaust backfired, and it does seem to have the drone affect....

suggestions.
