Re: ED XR6 lack of power

yep, as above - check the cat, also the fuel filter, distributor cap, rotor, leads, ignition timing...

if the timing is very retarded it will go like crap and use lots of fuel too...

Re: ED XR6 lack of power

get your compession checked, mine's only done 155k, and 2 cyl's are really far down on compression. (still goes quick enough though).
