Default not sure if its a problem or not....

So heres what i've got guys....

This is nothing new by the way, but im curious if its a problem or just the LS's are setup,

When i take off from a light (or complete stand still) it seems like it really take some time for my car to start pulling. I really dont feel the power band until about 3500-4000rpm. Furthermore, when the car shifts, it seems like it takes a while to get back into the power range (once again between 3500-4000). Is this common with the 3400 motors? If so what can i do to get some more low end power.

So far i have a short ram intake, 2.5 borla catback, MAF screen delete, and 91+ octane.

....If this is a PROBLEM, what should i be looking for and what can i try to repair?


...BTW, my car has 92k miles

Yup...I think it was Montejass, in fact, who told me back in the day not forget that all the bolt-on mods you do will not necessarily reap the benefits you expect. Remember that you drive a car with a computer controlled engine.

Let the PCM know what's up.
