mhmm.. your suggestions that it might be the tune does bring me some catharsis as that is easily fixed. rather then say a bad fuel pump or something. . .
Its a canned tune. a friend gave me a I3 diablo sports tuner. They had a tune on there for airaid and 93 octane (after i bought the license) so i haven't interacted with AM in any way but I am going to remove it and try 89 or none at all and see if there is a difference. I will also inspect the CAI and use MAF cleaner although i though that that would throw a code.
appreciate the feedback.
*sorry i said custom tune i meant canned lol
