Default engine hesitation

hey, i just got a 94 civic hatch with the 1.5 16v motor. it has a slight hesitation when accelerating up to around 3 grand or so and then the powerband kicks in, and i dont know what it could be.

Pull codes and run an injector cleaner. Or you may just be enjoying the low torque of the honda engine... these things have no pep whatsoever untill 3k rpm.
