ok so i bit the bullet and bought NTK sensors. bought both at 87 each through rock auto. they came today and i just finished installing them. no change in performance. it still ran a 31 sec 0-60. but it felt stronger and there was no misfiring and no other ill effects just a dog. i did notice that it was especially doggy at the low end, like it bogged down right at take off then got stronger at about the 5 sec (10 mph) mark i didnt mark rpm but i could get it easy enough next time i drive it. i then came back to the garage and checked timing. still at 4-5 btdc, so i changed it to 9 btdc and ran it again. 26 seconds. so i am thinking that my timing is not functioning properly. when i suck on the vacuum hose to the dist diaphragm it does nothing to the rpm or sound. when i goose the throttle i can watch the advance go up.
