well i posted this up in the repair & maintenance forum, but i wanna see if my NE buds can help me out too! here is my problem:
i used to have the eBay AEM CAI (OBX) and i never changed or checked the filter cuz i hate taking off the bumper to get at it. so recently when i am at a dead stop and i go to "blip" the throttle before i take off, the engine hesitates for a quick sec and then revs itself up to where i want it too. but its not the throttle response i want. i want it so when i touch the gas, the revs go, without the hesitation!
so i figured this issue was due to the filter being clogged from the rough winter I had here in Mass. plus i put about 20K+ miles on it. so i bought an Injen CAI, put it in, and took it out for a drive when i was done. the same problem was there when i "blipped" from a dead stop but also a few spots through the revs in almost all the gears, the car seemed a little hesitant. (it wasnt full on strong through the gears) i never had this problem with the OBX CAI.
so i am wondering if anyone has had this problem or something similar. i am wondering if its maybe the fuel filter being clogged, or the plugs maybe being fouled... any help???? THANKS!!!
