crockersmith,

Haha I would say more than half of our customers have the same problem, including myself. How are we suppose to be easy on the pedal when there's all this new unleashed power waiting behind the throttle?!

If you have the mod bug now and you're looking for even more power, try a Bama SF3 tuner. Then you'll really find yourself with a lead foot!

If you already have a tuner, was the tune built for the cold air? If you do have a tune for the cold air already, it would be curious to hear that you lost mileage.

No tune needed with the Airaid, tune would just be icing on the cake.

No, doesn't need a SF3, if he wants a tune then he needs to get the Diablo inTune, so you guys need to get off the stick and start stocking them.

Just get a K&N drop in if you want to see a slight mileage increase, you already have a CAI from the factory!

I try to stay under 75, I think the car starts to get thirsty with anything over 80.
