i got my car to idle correctly now because i adjusted the linkage that tells the throttle body to stop (did TB mod and intake and somebody said thats what worked for them cause their idle was **** also and it seems to work for me)... i set the idle to 750 approx rpm's and reset my TPS to 1.0 volt... so after driving a few times and getting those to set to spec i go into second and the car just does not go anywhere until i back off... i did not look at the mph when it was doing this... in N the car revs nicely in all the power bands though i did not rev it too high cause im just paranoid right now after i got it running... so if it idles rock solid at 750rmps but no power driving what could it be? i know blown motors idle terrible right... or just no power but an ok idle?

SETUPk i have the air pump removed (gutted cats), ACV blockoff plate, hoses capped, cruise removed and hose capped, cone filter intake, TB mod (ported and thermowax and other thing removed)... thats all ... btw its a n/a... would it have anything to do with the emmision (air pump and crap) removal?

thanks in advance

You gotta tell more info like at what rpms? A number of things could be as simple as Vaccumm leaks still, secondary injectors not plugged in all the way, the coolant sensor or aFM connectors loose.

You gotta rev it high and see if you have any hickups....
