hey, just wondering if anyone has any ideas of what my problem could be? i have an 96 ef manual, my problem is that my car is very sluggish until about 2500rpm. it has only recently started going it, it is really starting to annoy me as it is really slow to 2500rpm then just kicks in and goes good.. any ideas?
cheers!

DO THE SCANS FIRST-my vn runs like crap when i blow the map sensor.check yours and vacuum leaks-spray aero start around the manifold and vacuum lines,it will rev fast with extra fuel.will lose water,pressurize the tank,overheat or if blow between cylinders,have 2 pistons on low compression.have to start some where-----1 scan,2 spray for leaks.3 water carbon test-radiator joint,4 compression test. you may find it in the first 4.
