It all started after I got the head gasket done, I noticed a massive drop in power..
going through possibilities checked:
-Cam timing
-Tensioner Timing
All was a-ok.

Plugs, Leads, Dizzy, Highflow Cat, Oil, Oil filter, Fuel Pump are all new.

Symptoms are massive power loss,
eg; - When i take off at the lights, reving it to 1.5 - 2grand the revs drop right down and pick up again (asthough im towing something)
- Driving 1st Gear around 2grand and punching it, doesnt have the 'kick' it normally does
- Dropping the clutch for a bit of traction loss stand still is impossible, will last a few seconds and the revs slowly drop.
- A Mate drove it last night and said it deff doesnt have the go (suggested accelerator cable is fried but looked and said it was ok).

Guys this is seriously driving me insane, if you have any suggestions at all please tell me (apart from a turbo/blower) I just wanna solve this issue so I can get my fairlane back to how it was!!!

Cheers
- Ash
