SOURCE: lack of power and speed.
Do you have any other modifications such as larger tires? The 1.3L engine puts out enough HP and Torque to run the stock size tires, but if you go up to a 31" or larger you will loose the ability to use 5th gear except for downhill runs with a tailwind. The stock carb is just too restrictive and is designed for fuel economy and low emissions.
If you do have stock wheels on it then the stock carb should be able to turn them. The problem may not be in the carburator body itself though. If any of the vacuum lines, solenoids, vacuum switches or EGR on the carb are defective or not hooked up correctly the Little Hitachi carb will not function correctly.
If you don't live in a state that has CARB emission standards then you should go with an aftermarket carb and a set of headders. The Webber is a popular and very easy replacement. Opening up the exhaust to about 2" with a set of headders will allow it to breath well and still have enough back pressure to give you low end torque.

Have you checked all fuses for the cooling fans? Seems to be that the car is warming up to temp and then some, and protecting itself from overheating by shutting down the engine.

I cant say I have ever even seen one of these, but lets start with this; Most vehicles can tolerate quite a lot of moisture (driving in heavy rain) but when it is 'flooded' with water, even garden hose pressure, that water is going to get into places it shouldn't. Your mechanic may may be going down the right path but try this first; remove spark plugs and replace if they have 50k or more miles or any are dark brown to black on the porcelain around center electrode. When you gain access to them and after turning them out about 1.5 turns, blow out water and/or dirt from around them with compressed air, this keeps it from entering plug hole. While you are using air, blow out spark plug wires/boots on both ends. As I first said, I am not familiar with this engine at all so I am not sure if you have a single coil or multiple coils. Blow out any water in any connections to these if possible. Replace boots/plug wires if they show any sign of arcing/excess wear (cracks,tears,brittle,torn) or more than 50k miles.When reassembling use a good quality dielectic silicone grease To help 'weatherproof' them.Make sure you did not damage or dislodge any other hoses/tubing/ect.. when cleaning.Hopethis helps! Please rate me. Thanks!

ok theres a pcv valve located between the carb and the valve cover. its screwed into the intake manifold. make sure it is hooked up. also check for any vacuume leaks. if you find any cracked hoses, replace them.
also for the guy whos sami sputters on turns. check the ground stud located above the battery on the firewall. if its loose or corroded clean it up and tighten it.check the ground strap coming from the distributor area between the engine and firewall. make sure its in good shape. alot of times the distributor o rings leak oil on the wiring and rot it out. thats easy to repair also. check your engine mounts by standing on one side of the hood and grabbing the engine and pulling it side to side. the mounts are known for wearing out. they are fairly easy to replce and cheap. about 20 a piece if not less.
any more questions check out this site.

If you're lucky, on the inside of the door, will be a triangular panel
right behind the mirror that you can pop off. If you're not as lucky
and it's one piece or the panel is blocked by the door panel, you'll
need to remove the door panel to change it.
On the inside trim, you can remove screws (these screws may be covered by filler pieces or may be visible, or they may require you pry a plastic piece off that covers the screws) that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can remove the bolts holding the mirror onto the door
