Default timing belt broke.... now problems :(

hey guys my timing belt broke on my crx with a mini-me setup. z6 block with a y8 head. So anyways i changed the timing belt and it starts just fine and stays idle really good. Just if i try to gas it acts like its going to die. but now if im moving and try to gas it it seems to work fine. I am guessing it has something to do with air/fuel problems?? any suggestions??

yeah... lined it up like three different times with the specs. It doesnt backfire when driving or anything either. Its just when its at idle that if i try to step on gas it acts like its going to die.

If the timing was off it would be all the time with the dying right?? I check the timing last night to make sure it is tdc and it was...... now if im in third and try to step on the gas to hard then it also acts like it is going to die. But if i creep into it then its ok.... Any suggestions pleaSE! I just broke the timing belt and i get a hand full... Put yet again it is hesitant sometimes when i step on the gas.... I dont have a adjustable cam gear just the stock y8 head cam. I have a z6 block as well FYI. Please help.

Thanks

try a compression test if you'd like, but I'm guessing the timing is still off maybe even a tooth. triple check it, take it off completely and follow a manual's instuctions to the T.

is it possible that you bent some valves when the timing belt broke?

Yes, but you would probably hear some noise, and you would def. know if you did a compression or leakdown test.

No you wouldn't.

Maybe the first time, but it would all happen so fast you really wouldn't hear it unless you were paying attention.

Just from experience i have done timing belts on honda sohc engines and the book way doesnt always get it right. One tooth will throw it off alot. Just for grins check the distributor cap and rotor, ya never know!!
