Boggin, sputtering..help?

I have a 93 240sx and the problem is that it bogs under acceleration, when i accelerate instead of picking up it sort of bogs, it goes but like not with it's full potential, like misfire or sputter. It already replaced the spark plugs and the wires. I also removed the AIV and that whole system thing, the car worked better for a day and then went back to the sputtering. Thanks

Just boost It

check the fuel filter. Those can make your car run like ass. Go with the Z32 fuel filter while you are at it

1990-1996 300zx. I dont know if it is N/A or TT. Maybe eithere works..can't recall. I honestly hav enever chnaged a fuel filter. I am about to though because I am installing a walbro 255lph pump. I would disconnect the fuse if nothing else. You can also catch the gas in a pan and put it into a gas can and re use it....dont know how pratical that is. Does fuel that hits air have nay advers affects on performance/driveability

If the 'check engine' light is on, do an ECU code readout. It will most likely help you fix your problem.

O2 sensor

CHeck engine light was on . Autozone said the EGR the MAS and the O2 were all in alarm . So I did a tune up changed the o2 sensor , but not quite ready for the money to spend on the others . However ! She's running like a dream now ! The O2 sensor must have done the trick , I can even tell a power increase (probably the tuneup ) . Anyway figured I'd post the fix O2 sensor all the way . I'll fix the others just to get the light off .
