Re: Power issues with the EA Falcon... please help me!
I once a had a CFI EA Falcon and it too was gutless. A few things that improved it's performance was to get the 4spd auto serviced. It seemed to have a habit(tranny) after 20min to go into limp home`mode and the car would have no power as it is stuck in 3rd. Have you tried manually shifting it through gears, does it improve performance? A stretched accelerator cable too will also give you poor throttle response. Also check the ignition timing, advancing it by 4 degrees does make a significant acceleration improvement(run it on premium though).
I converted my car to multipoint about 4months ago, so much more power now. You should really consider this mod if you what to kick 4cyl toyota's. Hope this was some help but the old CFI and 4spd auto just don't really put out that much power until you get it above 60km. Thats why multipoint is the go, drive a multipoint car and you will notice a huge difference in acceleration off the line.
