    I had that problem and people told me to change the coil. So I did and that fixed it try that and see if it works really easy to get to and a good 15 mins to get it done. The good thing is if its the coil its a cheap fix.

    My '93 was doing the same thing, pop and sputter on the 1-2 shift (even after new coil). I have just under 130K. A few months later my tranny gave out (auto). I took the opportunity to drop the engine to simplify the tranny change and do some much needed maintenance (fix oil leaks, intall headers, upgrade to vented opti, wires etc.)
    I was thinking the popping at high rpm's was caused by my tranny on it's way out and allowing the engine to spin to the rev limiter. But once I tore into the front of the engine to upgrade my opti, I found it had a bad bearing (that explained a mystery noise from my engine) Now I wonder if that was causing the high rpm 'miss'
    I still don't have it back together yet, so I don't know if I solved the problem yet, but I'm sure it will be gone. So I suggest an opti inspection.

    I'm sorry, I wasn't implying your tranny was bad, I was just explaining my thoughts on my car, but it turned out to be my OptiSpark. I was suggesting you have your OptiSpark checked out. Sorry for the confusion.

    My car was doing that same exact thing detail for detail about a month ago, so I tried changing the plugs, problem solved. Hopefully you have the same easy outcome.
