after 4 days of driving my newly bought 03 svt, eng light popped on and eng seemed like 'chugging' and just die when approaching stops. Replaced front o2 because of heater circuit malfunction. still chugged. Now I took off aftermarket air filter (on vehicle when bought) and reinstalled factory air box and tube under battery. Engine runs great, doesnt load up rich and die at stops, and fuel mileage is back up! also just replaced lower ball joints.
