    smells like gas!

    sup G2ic, after i installed my new crane cams, my car has been idling funny from 1000 then drops between 800 and 500 and from the exhaust it smells like gas, could this be a timing issue? or is it something else? I also feel a loss of power around third gear when it reaches 5000 RPMs and then feels like it struggles to reach redline. well here are the mods:

    B18A1 107,578 miles
    CAI
    DC sports header
    custom 2 1/4 inch piping with stock muffler
    crane cams stage 2
    AEM pullies
    skunk 2 IM
    please help the best you can guys

        i just pulled my spark plug wires and all of them were wet, with what i think and looked like oil, except for number 3 it was dry. Does this mean something or is it just me?

          talked with a buddy a while ago and he has some mechanical knowledge, and he said it sounds like i'm running rich, and advised that i get a fuel pressure regulater. and my probelm should go away. what do you guys think?
