Hey, so I just did a head gasket replacement kit on all my gaskets, new radiator, new dizzy, new hoses, new plugs/wires,and got my head cleaned and shaved. And before head gasket replacement I was doing 0-60 on my d15b7 auto civc lx in 9sec. After I got it running again it felt so smooth. I got everything working right and was sounding at it's best so I floored it after 2 days of driving but it only did 0-60 in 15sec......huge difference. When I floor it doesn't take off like it used to. So when I floored it it made a lower pitch sound that was like a bubbling nosie and I was like what is that, so I looked under the hood and looked around my intake and nothing there(thinking of coolant/water). Before head gasket job I had a coolant leak and I believe I found it from the heater hose but wondering if anyone knows what could cause a bubbling nosie close to this or similar loss of power. Would love to find out asap. thanks. if you need more info on problem just ask ill explain my best. :\

A friend said sounds like intake but he's not a pro.

New:
Radiator
Timing belt
Dizzy
Water Pump
Gasket Set
AEM intake filter/ebay piping
Hermonic balancer - used

I need some help. Huge loss of power at 0-20 and my idle used to be higher whats the idle it should be at mine is at 300-500rpm idle. Once I get moving it sounds better just after i stop and give it some gas it has a bubbling/farting nosie from engine. PLEASE HELP GUYS!

idle should be around 700 to 800rpm at idle i think, if its popping maybe the timing belt slipped a tooth. just throwing something out there. just make sure to check everyone of your connections, make sure nothing is disconnected

Did you push any coolant into the overflow? The sluggishness sounds like your cam timing is off.
