Default Re: sluggish

See if you can pull codes from the computer system ('87 will not light a "check engine" light). Some sensors are not used until it goes into closed loop. Could be ECT, o2 sensor, failing TFI, etc. But check the computer for codes (particularly CM) first before replacing anything.
