[200q20v] hesitation on acceleration

Sounds similar to my trouble. I pulled my distributer last week and one
tooth was gone. Another was totally loose. The gear was cracked in many
places. I'll try to post pics tomorrow. I put in a new dist with the metal
gear. I don't know why Bentley says to remove the intake manifold?! I didn't
have to do that. The hardest part was drilling out the anti-tamper bolt. I
didn't wait for my alignment tool to show up. I just lined up TDC on #1
before I pulled the old dist. Put the new one in the same orientation with
the rotor pointing at the notch on the housing. I have full boost again at
all RPM's. Now I remember why I like that car.
