Eg hatch dx poor throttle response and lack of power when warm

Asked by Dec 01, 2016 at 11:27 AM about the Honda Civic Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So i bought the car(1992 civic cx with a dx motor 5
spd) then the radiator blew and then blew head
gasket. Changed it but advanced the timing belt
one tooth on accident. Ran good and strong. Went
to smog it and failed. Ran to rich. Catalytic
converter passed.  Checked timing relized my
mistake. Set tooth back, timed perfect.  Since then.
Poor throttle response and lack of power at lower
rpms. Seems to be when it warms up it gets worse.  
Ive adjusted TPS, checked map. Changed cap and
rotor, plugs, wires, coil and ignitor, double checked
timing, fuel filter, all injectors are clicking.
I have no engine codes. Ive tried unpluging the
oxygen sensor and felt no difference but had light
come on.

Any suggestions?
