question..plz help!

Hey all, I have a 2002 V6 mustang. It has an ebay CAI(fender mount), magnaflow exhaust, 3.73 gears, auburn t-lok(both for 7.5 rear), and a steeda tri-ax. Also have a SCT chip from velocity performance mustang. Anyway, here is my concern.

1. Some days my car feels sluggish and other days it doesn't...why is that? I change all my fluids and do all the maintenance when it calls for it.

2. gas mileage seems to change from tank to tank. Sometimes it'a fine, toehr times it's not so fine.

Well...think this may have been answered before, but thought I'd ask. I doubt anything is wrong, just thought I'd check

Re: question..plz help!

My car does the same thing man, some days it launches like a bat outta hell, other days it just sits there and acts like it's going. I think alot of it has to do with the weather, I know I live down here in the humidity belt, and that just drains engines.

Re: question..plz help!

Weather does have alot to do with it, but it could also be your tune. Do you have a chip, or a flasher? is their anyway you can get a hold of a copy of your tune somehow?

Re: question..plz help!

Weather can definately affect performance.

Gas mileage should not fluctuate unless your driving style changes.

Re: question..plz help!

I know for a fact that my car feels quicker in the fall and winter as opposed to the summer.

Truly a cold air intake!

That's just heat, it slows an engine down alot. I'm ready to see how my car acts in the winter with my mods, haven't driven in the cold yet.

Come up here to PA and test it in -10 degree weather. That is fun.
