power loss.

I was driving on the freeway the other day and decided to punch the gas to hit 90+mph. I felt my car a bit sluggish and stubborn. So my main question is what's the most common reason behind this?

Intake spacer just adds length to the air flow allowing to cool down. It's like a poor and easy Windstar intake. The Jmod is for a auto It's a shift kit but allow the shift to be faster and firmer by making bigger holes in the value body

it's a v6 auto...it's not really meant to be a fast car at all stock. most likely it's just sluggish because flooring a car you can't downshift really doesn't give you the kick you'd think you would get. i've had a couple v6's and it's the same everytime. so what's the fix...get ready to either drop some good coin down or buy a different car

Do a good tune up if you haven't in a while. In my old '00 I put in new plugs and the butt dyno showed a gain of 20hp! Lol.
