Engine trouble need help!!!!
So just before thanksgiving I blew a head gasket on my engine. I just now managed to replace them both since i had it apart anyway. I put all the timing components back how the manual shows they need to be installed to maintain timing. I'm noticing no more leaking into the cylinders. Here is my problems it is taking a few second of holding down in the ignition to get it to turn over and start, but once it starts it idles fine and is holding temp down around 200-205. When I go to drive it its ok under light acceleration but when I gun it it bucks and loses power like it misfired until i let off the gas and slowly accelerate.
So far diagnostics done:
new head gasket
verified timing component install
all plugs are brand new OEM spec
no noticable intake leak
no noticable exhaust leak (but) i might retorque at cats where i disconnected injectors appear to be clean
