hard star and slugish take off

my 86 2.0 si is a bit hard to get started at times after it has bin sitting but not all the time. it is also a bit slugish till i hit about 2500 rpm is this normal? at 2500 the car sudinly comes to life and will just take off and at times it also tinds to hisatate whin i try to take off like there is nothing there.

Re: hard star and slugish take off

when your plugs are pretty bad, it usually hurts you the most in the 1k-3k rpm range. you'll also note a loss of power overall. the car will feel like its about to shoot off, then it kinda kicks a bit, then gets rollin. I've been there and done that. start with a tune up first (as it may need it anyway) and if that doesnt solve the problem, come back and we can start working towards the next solution.

for 4 plugs its like $3.50
Its the cheapest, most simple, and most likely solution. Still not working try going with a set of wires (as you may need those also)

took me 25 minutes to do a tuneup on my 94 and I was half drunk and singin music most of the time.

Re: hard star and slugish take off

Did you PERSONALLY put the 302 in there??? or did you have someone fabricate everything up for you and drop it in?

I'm not really sure on motor options, as you have a 2g lude. You may have to look around. I know there is only a limited amount of places you can find h22 motor mounts for a 3g ... I could only imagine how hard for a 2g.

Take a look around on the internet, and see what kind of motors are swapped into the old ludes.

And maybe you should start rolling around to some of the meets. From what I've heard its a lot of 3-5 generations, and not too many 1g or 2g ludes show up.

yes i built the 302 from the ground up and fabed all the parts to put it in the car and put it in myself it took me 2 months to get it dun. i used the factory toyota trans and built my own bellhousing and clutch.

i will try googling it and see what i fined.

well i did the tune up and the car is still hard to start but it dus seem to be running better, for now lol.

by better, do you mean its not having a hard time taking off anymore?

Awesome job on the 302 swap. What mods were done to the 302? you know a rough estimate of whp and ft lbs?

yes for now.

it is bored 40 over with flat tops, 351w heads slight (porting), a comp cams 512 in, 512 ex, cam, 4bbl intake, and factory mustange gt headers. acording to my descktop dyno and to a friend who worked the numbers i should be do 350 fhp and about 400 ftq. so that would be about 315 hp to the ground, and i wouldnt be suprised the car will scare the **** out of ya.

here is the print up of the dyno
