transmission problem?

so ive started to notice my car for lack of a better word jumping rpms? between 2000 and 3000 rmps it jumps about 200 rpms after kind of lagging for a split second. this is the best way i can think of to describe it. It isnt horribly noticeable but if you feel for it you can feel the car jumping. I started noticing it after installing a CAI could that be the reason? let me know what you think!

My 01 has the same problem. Do you have any leaks? I took it to a transmission shop and they said that motor oil is seeping into my tranny fluid and the rear u joints are shot. They recommended me a tranny rebuild. I've been driving like that for 2 years but it could give out at any given moment

Check over everything you did to the CAI, mainly around the Mass Air Flow Meter. My best bet is that you have a leak somewhere or its not on tight enough.
