HELP car wont run right - 05-06-2010

alright guys if i can get any help it would be awesome

problem: car runs like crap until 3500-4 or higher boost started after i swapped out the clutch

things we have looked for: wiring harness that i pinched when swapping the clutch out, o2 sensors, power to o2 sensors and the rest of the wiring harness, spark plugs, and COP's.

me and my mechanic are at a loss of what it could be i really want the car up and running for the brawl

nope the clutch is fine we looked that over good and if it were that i would think it would slip in higher rpms more were it runs great in high rpms


i am going to price a new wiring harness for it tomorrow and if it isnt outrageous i am just going to put a new one in

Evan how do you know its not a spark plug or COP? You could have a slight crack in the porcelain on a plug. A COP can go bad at anytime. My guess would be a COP. Good luck and let us know what you find.

i put brand new plugs in once it started acting up

i know it isnt a cop because i had my weapon x cops in and acted the same way, put stock in doing the same, put a spare set i had laying around it did the same, put my brothers stock ones in and still continued to do it.

i talked to jen a little bit ago and she thinks it may be a blow fuse which should have been the first thing i looked at but have not done so yet.
