    are you at the proper speed for the gear you were in?


    example: if youre going 30 mph in 4th gear and slam on the gas- its going to take a few seconds for the car to get going unless you downshift

    1) Are you certain the intake was installed correctly? Specifically the MAF and are you sure the MAF is clean?

    2) You need to pull the code and then go from there.

    3) It is a generally accepted etiquette for communication through text (like web sites, chat rooms, email, etc.) that typing in all cap letters is considered yelling/shouting.

    4) You should check out our SW regional forum HERE, for people close to you.
