I've recently bought a RS200 and I'm having the hardest time revving it above a certian RPM (about 3000, and it has a hard time reaching 3000 even with any load). It has a verry bad hesitation. If I floor the car in 1st it is very jerky. The car idles perfectly. I'll list what I have done, any other suggestions would be great!
Checked for vaccum leaks (there was none)
cleaned MAF (I've had 4 toyotas to date, problem on all of them lol)
Cleaned throttle body
cleaned the whole intake system
checked the coils (unpluged on idle, all of them are working atleast on idle)
checked injectors (in the same fashion as the coils)
I have no CEL
Can not get my scan tool to connect to the car to verify lack of CEL (Innova 3100)
I will note that the exhaust gets hot if I run the car on the highway. It has some 'after smoke' and it got hot enough to melt my bumper a little bit. I'm assuming it is running lean based on this, not rich. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I really am stumped.
