Default 92 SSEI starts and runs as if it were carbeurated.

My 92 ssei superchard starts but wont idle unless u give it gas and let it warm up a bit. then it idles really low. it sounds cool out the exhaust like a hopped up V8 with a lumpy cam but dont run like one. when you give it gas going down the road it wil run ok until you floor it and it pops through the exhaust a couple times like a miss but not consistant like one. the engine seems to be running really rich. any suggestions.

1. Please fix the title or the post.. this is either a 92 or 93.. but not both

2. Have you recently done any work.. like plugs, wires or anything that caused either to come off the car? Recently hosed down the motor?

I'm thinking it'* either tune up related or a bad coil pack... Answering #2 will choose which direction to send you.
