    Hmmmm can i ask some details?

    What engine do you have?
    Vtec or non-vtec?
    How many miles?

    Is it manual or automatic?

    Oh and MAP or MAF sensor?

    When you added the intake or exhaust did you still use the original O2 sensors or have to move/remove the MAF (if you have one)?

    A MAP is a Mass Air Pressure sensor, and a MAF is a Mass Air Flow sensor. you will have either one or the other and they are part of your intake system...the MAP is usually part of the Throttle body assembly or right before and measures air pressure....
    The MAF is also part of the intake system but will measure mass air flow and is usually found a little upstream from the throttle body. (usually looks like a little box thing attached to your intake) neways they send readings to your ECU and tell the car basically to add X amount of fuel because it is measuring X amount of air. So if the intake you added changed or removed the MAF/MAP this could be part of the issue below WOT (Wide open throttle)

    Just a guess tho....do you have a CEL (Check engine light) on?

    yeah its been on since i bought the car.
    but it will go on and off.
    i can drive for about 5 mins without it on and then it will come on.
    ill shut my car off and wait for about and hour and it will still be on drive for a little bit and it will cut off. its back and forth like that all the time.

    and i didnt take the air flow sensor off because i just have cold air air filter i dont have the whole arm on there.
    im still in the process of putting it on because of money

    Have you got the code read for the CEL? You can get it read for free at autozone or advance. Cool

    Your issue probably has to do with the CEL...some cars when they detect a issue will go into a kinda "limp" mode to be safe...so that could be why your car is bogging down.

    I would have to agree with the MAF, I know you said you did a cold air intake, This could be part of the problem, check all you wiring on your intake sensors, and more importantly the throttle body.

    would it matter if it was doing it before i put the cold air on there??
    and i didnt take the whole arm off i just have the cold air filter on the end of my stock intake arm until i get the money to get the arm.

    that and i went by autozone and oriellys today to see if they could run the code and neither one of them have right stuff for anything lower than a 96 honda No

    Is it ODBI? yeah alot of shops dont have ODBI readers.....if thats it.

    Can start looking at the typical stuff....

    how many miles does the car have on it?
    When was the last time the engine and tranny fluid was drained and serviced?
    last time plugs were swapped out?

    Have you ever ran a compression check on your cylinders?

    changed the spark plugs about 6 months ago
    and the tranny and engine fluid was changed about 2 months ago

    and never ran a compression check.
    lol never knew that was a option.

    its not too hard only did it a couple of times, but it is pretty easy and the ppl at the car care center can help you out as well. Tho i dont think that is it.
