My car sounds like a harly, and power loss/bogs...help me please :)

ok I belive its a b18a, an integra LS engine

my car, after driving it on the highway for a few kilos crusing at around 150 ish i get off the highway and my car started to sound like a harley, and has poor power gain/bogging down. The exhaust is brand new so that is not the problem


today I baught new plugs, and new plug wires

that didnt do anything

there is still the problem, and the engine shakes slightly more then normal, my RPM is normal and there is nothing obvious that I can find wrong


please provide some input, if any, im going to work on the car tommorow so let me know asap- and to keep this post going fast if you have a question to me, just ask, but provide an aswere to your question as if I did/have/tried what you mentioned, just saves allot of time.

thanks allot, I appreciate it

that woudl explain teh shake, and HUGE power loss..you wouldn't get a HUGE power lose from broken exhaust, turn ur car on and take a pair of pliers and pull number 1 cylinder wire, then put it back in do teh same for 2,3,4 cylinders...each tiem u do this the engine should loss that cylinder while the wire is out, the cylinder that makes no difference when u pull teh wire is your dead one...then u can go from there....but bring it in to a mechanic imediatly...dead cylinder means you have a floating piston
