Not Pulling Like She Use To

Basically the title says it. I picked up my Mustang a at the end of last year and it was nothing but amazing to drive. I have been driving the car now as a daily driver for about 6 months now and it just doesn't pull like it used to. I did add a couple bolt ons and a tune and it ran great after that. Recently about a month ago I noticed that it wont pull. I try and push it when it gets to about 3000 RPM it just kinda revs out. I'm going to be cleaning my CAI this weekend and I am hoping that will help out. Other then that regular maintenance has been kept up on.

My car is a manual trans...I thought that was only for automatic trans. Also I do have a tune on the car, so I'm pretty sure that my car isn't looking at fuse 47 anymore.

Mine is doing the same thing right now and I have a manual. I did a full tune up and it didn't help much. It revs and wants to go but slowly accelerates but occasionally it does pull right.

Where do you live? Climate can affect performance.

I'm actually in Alabama right now for work, it is really hot everyday(90 and up). For the last 3 months I have been here, and it has ran great. I know the heat could have an effect on performance, but I've never had a problem till about a month ago.

I see. Well if you've been filling up at a particular gas station lately I'd try and switch. I've filled up on bad gas before and it kills performance. As a car ages, it loses performance, but yours is still pretty much new so I seriously doubt that somethings wrong with the car itself.

See if you MAF or plugs are dirty, (youd be getting a stumbling if they were, but worth a check) also you might have a bad batch of gas. Hows the humidity been lately? Thats also a killer of performance

Fuse 47 deals with more than shift points in the Automatic. Plus, just a quick fuse pull, 10 minutes and see how it feels. Worth trying.

Also good to take it back to stock and then re-upload the tune.
