    In my experience distributors (inside electronics) either fail completely or work fine; there is no middle ground of poor running. My 92 ran fine without a cat with no codes. I think yours is something else.

    If you don't have a cat on it, then most likely you don't have a restriction. Post a picture of what you did in the distributor, otherwise it would just be guessing.

    Nope, it should be at about a 45 degree angle. And I am telling you that because that is the way it says it should be in the FSM. I'm sure it's been suggested to you to buy a FSM. Right? Look at the picture below, do you have the wires in their correct location?



    Look at the position of the distributor in the picture below, that is how yours should be.

    The exact position of the dist isn't 100% critical, it just shows that somebody doesn't pay attention to detail. As long as the wires are in the correct order it should run fine. If being out of position causes the plug wires to be out of position in relation to the numbers, then that is a small problem that should be corrected. It's Monday morning and I can't think straight yet.
