There have been some good diagnostic tests suggested that'd I'd follow through on before putting hose clamps and ecus in the car hoping one makes the problem go away.
The thing is, I've had the compression tested, checked the oil and everything is fine.

It's also weird because the engine will start working perfectly and respond to acceleration normally; but it's not consistent. When I start to accelerate the car from standing still at a light, sometimnes it bogs down. When that happens, I press the clutch, accelerate and it catches back on. I also have to admit that when I use the AC, the car doesn't want to pull and it feels like I lose a lot of horsepower.

One reason I bought the MS is that I plan to go back to COPs. When I had them on, the engine would work properly.

I got a prior suggestion about the car's coil packs but I didn't find any locally so I decided I might as well get the MS and proceed with the installation. At least, that way I'll be able to verify some parameters that I can't verify now.

Thanks for the help,
