Floodyou76 1st, you would think you need to go to whoever you bought the car and get the tuner for it...Xcal2, Xcal3, whatever it may be. Im not 100%, but Im pretty sure you cant go back to stock without the stock file that was saved on the original tuner equipment....not 100%.

Maybe its something in the tune...or lack of one, maybe its mechanical...why would you buy it if it didn't run right? did you test drive it??

teh_touch I can go higher than 3k but it starts sputtering higher than 3. It's ran this way since I bought it. It seems to idle fine. Its an injen short ram intake. I don't know how to find if it has a tuner let alone what wideband is. I'll have to look at the S/C when I get a chance to see what brand. I cleaned the MAF last night and made no difference.

Floodyou76 a little info might help....S/C type? you have tuner? if so, type? wideband? if so, whats the A/F read like at 3k? where is the intake? have you tried cleaning the MAF? what happened before it started doing that? how long have you had it running ok prior to acting up? how does it idle?

if u you cant get past 3k, then that's why you only see low boost RPMs=boost, so I would think its not S/C related, at least at first.
