Sudden loss of HP?
I noticed this week I had a sudden loss of HP in my 02 GT. I couldn't figure out what the heck was going on and it seemed to get worse every day. So......yesterday ( Sunday ) was very nice outside 68F and most mustangs run really great at this temp but mine was worse.
Ok, popped the hood and was looking to see if any thing was wrong and I noticed something once I reached across the motor and laid my had on the CAI gently. It was so loose I could remove it from the throttle body.
I have a JLT cai on this car that I had installed in May and its clamps were screwed on not with a screwdriver but a socket wrench and I cranked on it to make sure they don't come loose. So I checked the rest of the clamps and they were all LOOSE too. That makes me mad, I have a friend that told me not to buy JLT because his did the same thing and he has to check his every month and tighten them. He said they look good but they don't stay tightened when I bought mine. So needless to say it's a new monster after that. The difference hp was like turning on your AC and trying to go fast. Errrrrrr!!!!
