Freakin Me OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was driving today on the freeway when A honda civic pulled up next to me he took off and then I decided to go and get him ( ) so I passed him, when I got off the freeway my svt was sputtering when I stopped at the light. I took off from the light and it sputters and farts so I thought it was a timing belt.... But upon driving it home the sputtering comes and goes, when I pull up to a light the sputtering and farting starts after I take off maybe going like 25-35mph sometimes it clears up and runs normal. I am really lost on this one.

Let me know what you think

P.S.-2002 SVT Focus 55,000 miles, check engine light on shows ignition error

Geeze, you know I want to help. But I afraid that you'll just go out and street race more. As it is now this problem is preventing you from doing so, thankfully. Take it as a sign.
