your experiencing the heat soak these intakes get... if you had a mtx, you could get past it by holding the revs a little longer...

im not sure if the fswerks cai does this or not, but it is going to be its worst when it is hot outside...

as far as the needle fluxuation, that was prob there stock...

some '08+ guys have grounded their throttle body... and have gotten mixed reactions on the mod... some say its worthless, others say it helps...

it is said to smooth idle and also help throttle lag a bit... or something... i have done it, and i like it just fine, even if its plecebo...

you could try to get new spark plugs and gap them to .060 (i think) and if you get autolite copper core plugs you'll get 3-5 whp... been dyno proven... but i think someone said it also smooths idle...
