i recently replaced my distributor, cap, and rotor, (wires and plugs were previously replaced), and now my 2 wont boost up above 6 psi other than rarely in 3rd and 5th, and when im at 6 psi, or even higher, and i get oof the gas suddenly it makes a pathetic psshh sound, not the deep, loud, and intimidating swoosh that it did before at the same pressure levels, i think i may have jumped one tooth in advance on my intake cam, would/could this be why? the car has ALOT more low end now than it ever did, and it has a really strong top end for only being 6psi, but i am still curious

why was the distributor replaced? and did you check your base timing after installing the new distributor?

the old distributor disentegrated, (bad install from quality toyota), heres the deal though, i jumped a tooth on the intake cam, lots of low end torque now, and i retarded the dist to run 15 psi, it boosts great now, but it still doesn't blow off nearly like it used to
