Question Power loss please help

ok so i know there is alot of people asking to help with there power loss problems but i cant link there problems to mine. So i have a 95 e36 325i. i have been noticing the car loosing power for quite sometime and it sucks. The i recently replaced the o2 sensor in the car but now im thinking its a injector problem. I notice it jerkin sometimes and think maybe i have a bad or leaking injector but i have no clue i will be cleaning the maf sensor tomorrow but i dont think thats going to help out to much. does anybody have any other thoughts or ideas on what could be wrong. O one more question would it be safe to cut my cats off and put a glass pack on the car, or would that even be a good idea. any exhaust ideas?

hi dude. from what i can gather about the e36's is that the crank sensor is a right royal pain in the ass. mine would stall, not pull properly, then i replaced it for the sensor from my old engine and it would cut out at 3000rpm and kick into life again so it may be worth checking that out before the injectors. i paid £30 for a sensor from ebay and it works just fine and took about half an hour to fit. an hour if you got a beer. just a thought. cheapest option first an' all that. hope this helps. john
