Lol really?

What does he want more power for? Racing? Building a sleeper? Or so he can get up a hill in that little car?

Your building a soon to be nasty crx. You know the basics. Help it breath! Intake and exhaust of some kind. But IMO, just do a motor swap of some sort. Hell a hyabusa motor would be nasty in that car.

Your friend can swap in a twin cam 16V Swift engine with little trouble (same body style).

Default uh oh

ok now al ol asudden it has started jerking all over the place like it isnt getting enough fuel and is doing strage things that me and him cannot figure out it sounds like it has an exhaust leak and makes strange sounds when it is turned off and cooling down it is very strange i cant figure it out and it is making me mad stupid geos

does anyone have any idea what it could be

my list of possibilities are
plugged fuel filter
bad fuel pump
bad injector
possible ring deterioration (which is a possability but it only has 140000 miles on it)

Well, you said your friend beats on cars and goes through several a year. Maybe it's time for him to upgrade?

Anyways, on to the problem..
Does it jerk around only while moving, only stopped, or all the time?
If it does only do it while moving does it happen in a certain RPM range?
Are there any knocking sounds while the engine is running?

Have you checked the basics yet? Proper fuel, air, spark, etc.

well it is while it is moving and it is not in a certain rpm range i have checked all but fuel since i have no way to check fuel pressure on his car but it idles fine just goes nuts when you try to give it gas and it doesnt do it all the time just most of the time we actually thought we fixed it without ralizing it earlier it was having its little spazm and then we shut it off for like 10 min and started it and it ran fine then it just randomly started again but it has spark and the ignition coil looks fine and we took off the air cleaner so it should get air just fine

when it is going insane when you rev it it will start to then act like you cut the fuel off and die after a second it seems to me like a fuel pump going bad

Wait, what?!? Is it running with no air filter?

its not like it is going to hurt it to run open throtle body for a few hours i run mine open when the weather is bad so i dont hydrolock my engine it wont hurt it it just needs to be cleaned more often but i clean mine about every oil change which i do religeously so it will be fine plus his looked like it hadnt had a new one in quite some time and deffinatly needs one but we have almost decided that it is probably the tps sensor so luckily he has a spare from when his brother owned the car which we will install in the morning and see what happens but thanks for the help demon
