Power loss?

So I just installed a K&N filter and an O/R prochamber and it kind of feels like it doesn't pull quite as hard now. Could it be the tune?

The computer in your car shouldn't 'require' a tune to gain from these mods.. Some miles and seat time should allow the ECU to adjust.

I mainly got the tune to turn off the CEL, I already had it set on the BAMA 91 street tune, so I had them rewrite the tune for the o/r exhaust and added in the intake

Do some data log and send it in and have them look it over, maybe a little tweaking is order.
it can't hurt, only help

Remember when you open it up more you may lose some low end torque

After driving it around for a while I think it actually did get a little power instead of losing it. The power just slightly moved in the curve because i opened it up more. I just think I'm getting used to the power lol. MOAR POWAH!
