Default I have a 92 Honda Civic Lx,1.6 automatic it lacks power up hills and stumbles sometimes

from 1st - 2nd gear? has new air filter, fuel filter, spark plugs (ngk), dist cap and rotor, transmission fluid, has good compression at 185 average, vacuum holds at steady 18inches. i did a injector flow test and injector 1 was lean and 3 was rich. Catylic converter seems good. Its like i have to mash the pedal to the floor to go fast please help

Although you're getting good compression across the board, it is a honda 4 cylinder 1.6l engine. Knowing honda's lack of torque and given the age of the car. I don't think you can ask much more of her.Is it stumbling because you're transmission is in too low of a gear? Put it in d3-d4 so that it's in higher rpms would help the car get up the hell.
