^^^ Yes, check to make sure you have the latest flash for your vehicle, you might want to take it to a dealer and have them check. Also, bogging is a comon problem with the SVTF but a custom tune (either Hypnotic's SCT or Toms Predator) will do away with that and add a LOT of power, very noticeable difference! Best bang for the buck mod IMHO :-) (I have Hypnotics tune and it ROCKS!!!!!!!!!)

even with yrf0 it will bog and drive like shit - just get a tune from tom or wayne depending on your budget and future plans for the car - nothing else will really fix the problem just make it slightly less awful

I got the yrf0 flash and it drastically improved the drivability of my car. I too live in Albuquerque and I can remember starting up my car and trying to drive up the gentle incline of my street (below 2000 RPM) and feeling the car trying to die on me.

NOTE: If you've got a 2004 you've already got the latest flash and you're kinda stuck unless you pony up the pesos for an aftermarket tune.

If you've got a 2002 or 2003 and don't have the flash, there is a TSB on it (WD40?) and your dealer ought to do it even if you ARE out of warranty.

Even though I've got the latest flash and it really helped, I still ordered hypnotic's tune. Moving along below 3000 RPM with the AC on pressing on the gas and . . . waiting until the car "catches" just isn't going to hack it.

I'll be posting my review of my flash after I've had it a week or so & burned a tank of gas.

The TSB is 3-19-11 according to alldata.com. "drivability issues/hard starts"
