little sluggish

Hey all, my v6 has been running a little bit sluggish the past few months. I cleaned the cai, changed the oil, checked the plugs and they all seem fine. I do have a chip that was used to re-tune the car when I purchased an auburn posi unit and 3.73 gears. Any ideas?

Also, I am going to be purchasing 17x8 bullit rims for my mustang soon....will I have to re-calibrate my speedo for the change in wheel/tire size?

Re: little sluggish

Got my Chip from justin at VMP tuning. Also, I know our v6's a re sluggish to begin with, but I figured after a new posi unit and geazrs it would wake up more than it has. Any other ways to make the car not feel so sluggish? I mean, Cars I should be walkin' over stay pretty close sometimes... and yes, I do know how to drive, lol.

Also, I don't believe I am throwing any codes

Re: little sluggish

Do you have bigger rims? Ever since I put on my 18s I feel like I am towing a boat when I take off.

Re: little sluggish

Nope, not yet. I still have the stock rims on mine. I'm pretty sure It's just because our cars are just sluggish, lol but I thought I wouldn't hurt to ask around a bit.

Well, until my '98 hits 2500 RPMs, it's dead weight.

Re: little sluggish

Make sure the MAF senser and TB is clean. The liitle wire inside the MAF somtimes gets crap on it. I'm not sure that it would produce a code or not if it was but it can sure mess with your air/fuel mixture.
