    Default WOT Issues

    I'm having an issue trying to figure this one out. My ZX2 won't go past 2000 rpm, anything above that and it feels lik it's not able to breath. I've changed the MAF sensor and checked for any vacuum leaks and nothing. Oh and no check engine light either.
    What could it be?

    i have another cat you can swap yours with to see if the problem is the cat. Just give me a call and stop by the next time you come to check out the zx2

    So the car miraculously started working well without me doing anything. I decided to do some preventative maintenance and swap out the coil, wires and plugs. The car has been doing good so far and started with the same issues. I took off the cat to try and see if it was clogged but it ran the same way, just loud.
    I was having an issue with the car not starting that I thought was the clutch safety switch but tracked it down to some wires under the steering wheel that were lose from a splice. Not sure if there is anything in that area that could be causing the issue

    Do you have CAI? Is it rubbing the FRPS? If so, maybe issue.

    How much fuel pressure you have? If fuel filter is clogged, insufficient fuel to injectors.

    You're sure the PCV tube elbows aren't collapsed?

    I did have one when the issue first started but replaced it with the oem one when the issue started as I thought it was one of the sensors on the intake. The bracket that it had did brake but I didn't think much of it. Looking at the wires on the fuel pressure sensor connection, they are very loose. Never thought to look there for issues and it was driving me crazy, now I can focus on my other car.
    thank you.
