I haven't had this happen yet Choppertwo, but I have heard of it happening on other cars and tunes. The issue basically comes down to the adaptive parameters in the car's ECU. With some tunes, when...

Love mine...and +1 on a very easy install. Remarkably so actually.

Those disconnected O2 sensors are probably not helping the MPG, so hooking those up would be wise. They're also important for...

Well, I'll be the dissenting voice and recommend a TB and tune. For results, see the "Rounds" in my signature.

That said, the SOUND of new mufflers is a lot of fun too. Maybe not that much...

If the cabin air filter was all mucked up, maybe some of that got in the fan and is holding it up? IIRC you can get to it from under the passenger side dash.

As to mods, as...

If there seems to be no rhyme or reason to it, the first two things that come to mind are (a) bad fuel - try adding some HEAT or StaBil and/or (b) bad battery. I had a battery in a different car...

On the Steeda CAI, there's a really good seal to the inside of the hood. Below the "airbox" there's a chute that pokes out toward the front of the car. Not ram air per se, but if you watch your...

Just to be on the safe side, check the tops of your shock towers and be sure there's no damage or rotting bushings. But the good news is that's it's probably just a freaked out electronic gizmo and...

The easiest way to check and see if it's a wheel bearing is to jack the car up and turn the wheels one at a time. Often times you'll feel it more than hear it if a bearing is really blown out.

Ah...well, no worries then. Sometimes you can get some flaky control responses when the O2 sensor leads are reversed, which is easier to do than it should be!

I'll second that. Steeda can sell you the tuner and CAI combo with lifetime tunes too.

If you can spring for it, ditch the stock headers ASAP. They are craptastic beyond belief. :icon_fryingpan:
