Well here I thought it was my new Airaid... Got home from work tonight, and the Airaid CAI was sitting there in a box wating. Disconnected the battery for about 1.5 hours while I did the CAI install, and just took my V6 auto for a quick spin. Wow what a difference. From this thread, it sounds like I got two things going for better performance, 1) The EU reset (temporary), and 2) the CAI (hopefully permanent) Idle is a little rough right now, but now has a nice low growl on fast acceleration below 3500rpm.
From a lot of slow stop and go driving lately around NYC, it was certainly feeling a lot slower than when I really pushed it driving up from NC.
If I had seen the thread earlier, I would have tested just the battery disconnect prior to the CAI install. (no...would not have waited
. Figure I will see how it reacts tomorrow during highway commute to work.
