Electrical issue along with a bad tune will do that

They said they need engine codes but I cleared it because the car didn't want to drive on the reduced and I needed to get to work so I need to wait for the check engine to come back

In the end you are going to want a professional tune. I would just get the hp now.

I've heard of a lot of people with MAF sensors going haywire because of the proximity to other tubing. Moved it and car ran much better. I'll see if I cant find that thread, it was just up this last week.
