Disconnect your EGR first and see what happens. Just take the tube from the AIV to EGR tube off.

It kicks ass when its cold, because your ecu is running open loop, it's dumping fuel in there, as your car warms up the loop closes, has a bunch to do with your o2 as well.

But yeah, when was your last tune up? plugs etc?

timing, get a timing light and rotate the distributor.

Oh yeah and do what Pretty White says too! Thats a known factor there also, I forget, I don't have that stuff anymore.

Forgive the noobish question, but what does this do? Is this a performance enhancer that I am not aware of? :)

Thanks,
Steve

No the egr tend to clog up causing problems, by disconnecting it you can find out for sure.

Go to se-r.net and check the FAQ or search here, it will answer alot of questions.
