Re: What do I need?

I am with Brian on this one. Get the compression tested to see where you are.

Re: What do I need?

If you've lost 30 horse, then you really need to find out what is going on. Your trap speed is not to far off of what you're ET was, so I'm thinking that your problem is a distinct lack of horsepower. On DR's there's no reason you shouldn't be sub-2.0 second 60' times unless you were blowing them off, and, frankly, that doesn't appear to be the case here. What is the general tune-up on the car? What do your plugs, wires, cap, and rotor look like? Have you changed the fuel filter recently? Have you checked the timing? These are areas that I would look at first, and then I would most definately do a leakdown test to determine the condition of the engine. Good luck, and please tell us what you find out!

Re: What do I need?

I may just be running my mouth, but I agree, I would definately check the timing........
