Capri eh? We'll talk about that beastie later!!

I'm trying to remember the layout of the 2.3, the coils are on 2 & 3 with leads to 1 & 4 iirc? The lack of omph after the leads could well be down to a supply voltage/current issue. Get a meter on the inputs and see what voltage you have.

Hello and welcome to the forum.
The engine wiring loom is prone to heat damage and is often the cause of misfiring and bad running.

Wiring and connectors to the injectors but don't overlook the other sensors around the engine bay.
