I have a Eb2 fairmont ghia and ever since i bought it it has been a slug of the mark it has a 3.23lsd in it so it should be a bit better than a stock gli. I am wondering if the injectors or cat are stuffed as the motor crapped itself and i replaced it with an Au motor with 71000k's on it and it is still a slug down low it has a little more in the upper revs but still not like other falcons that i have been in any suggestions would be a great help.

Brakes are all good will look into the tranny as i want to get an au one fitted anyway the lsd is fine this car even has problems turning the tyres in the rain is there anyway of checking the cat and injectors without removing them. Also it has a 21/2in cat back exhaust.

You can do a dynamic compression check that will tell you quite a bit without touching anything but the spark plugs.

Here's how.... http://www.imperialclub.com/Repair/Engine/dynamic.htm

That will tell you if it is blocked cat or intake, etc.

Have you checked fuel filter and fuel flow/pressure?

cheers
Scott
