okay i went to check out an 88 with a 1st generation 3sgte. first when you start it, it kind of struggles or maybe like it shakes like crazy. the dude was like he put a standalone ecu or whatever and it's distribuless or what not. he says the reason it's shaking like crazy is because of spark plugs. he said he had them specialized. they're now coils or what the hell. anybody heard of this shit? im pretty new to the 3sgte stuff. i've always loved the 5sfe. but overall this car drives well. at certain speed it struggles and shakes. someone plz help me. i really want the car so im asking for help!
