For backfiring, hesitation, and no power I'd be looking at the plugs and doing a compression check. Lots of things could cause from swapped plug wires (computer can mask a lot) to burned valve, bent valve, broken key in crank (balancer turning). Really need a complete check out with proper tools.

Could it be Cat converter? I have had converters go before but never acted like this. I do however nitice that could be a major issue in the Bonnies.

Its an '89 Bonnie

Never have to apologize for having a problem you can't figure out. Just don't give bad advise. I am glad you figured this out. Now go get some Taylor 8mm wires in the color of your choice and change them out.
