I've got a 94, 3.9 2WD that has always had that same exact problem. Have done every mod posted on this site, to include new injectors and E3 plugs. It runs awesome at low rpms and super above 2000. I'm beginning to think it's my pcm or bad distributor?

I just happen to have a extra PCM and tried it with no difference. So assuming they both don't have the same problem I eliminated that from my list

As for distributor bushing being worn? I pulled mine and didn't feel any slop or wobble. It's a straight solid distributor shaft. My engine was recently replaced and only has 20K on it, so I doubt it's a worn dist. gear. What is the best way to test for a worn dist. bushing?

You pull the shaft out, shuv it up your azz and run around the block. If the bushings aren't worn it shouldn't fall out.
Good Luck
