Hitachi-carbed '87 GL Wagon: all this gutless?

Or should I perform a leakdown and comp. on this car? This is a serious question guys, hills seem to pose real problems for my wagon and I am sort of shocked...

Get a better flowing muffler - that can help.

However... what is your top speed... if you can hit like 80 pretty easy on open freeway you car is probably fine... when my engine was screwed my top speed was like 64 MPH... now its 103... more if I could get some open freeway

You want to talk about gutless, drive my 83 GL-10 I used to have, I remember going over Siskiyou Summit going to Calfornia floored in 3rd gear pulling 55 MPH. Not too bad though, I still managed to get 32 MPG between Albany and Redding, CA (380 miles) Still had 1/8 of a tank too!
