Ride: Falcon BA XR8

Location: Newcastle
NSW, Australia

Hi guys

Occasionally when i drive my EF, the acceleration is jerky as all hell, and it feels like the fuel isn't flowing smoothly through the injectors, but a few friends seem to think it's a sparking problem because the loss of power occurs very instantaneously. I've heard EF Falcons are notorious for chewing through spark leads like a fat kid at maccas, and i've come to agree that this is the most likely cause for the problem. Just wondering if anyone has any other ideas, or has experienced this problem before. I'd hate to go spending hundreds of dollars replacing every little thing one after another because i couldn't identify where it was coming from.

Thanks

Just get a good set like Eagles or Bosch as Topguns are s**t! Topguns lasted only 8 months on my EL before they started making my EL cough and splutter!
