As you can tell, I have a 96 Accord EX with a VTEC (F22B) I believe.
I bought this car a couple months ago with 117,000 miles for only $1,550.
I have tried and tried to figure out what my problem is, but I can't seem to find it. My current assumption is that it could possible be my torque converter (yes I know it's not part of my engine).
The problem that I have is my take-off. If I take off slow driving normal, my car takes off fine and it is still really fast, but if I try to "punch it" on take off, I lose all power and my engine "chuggs". It will also do it in park if I am under the hood and I push the throttle hard.
What makes me think its my torque converter is when the pavement is wet, I can "punch it" and my tires just spin. Honestly, I am clueless but that is my newest idea.
I have changed my spark plugs, wires, TPS, Air Filter and more. Any ideas please let me know cause this is really starting to make me mad.

My check engine light comes on and shuts off only while driving at a steady speed. Scan tool said bad mass air flow (egr) and random misfire 2 and 4. I bought plugs, plug wires, cap and rotor. Made it run better but still has random misfire. I also checked the egr and cleaned the ports. Does anyone know what my next step should take?
