Not saying I am the best driver and not saying your cant drive but how long have you been driving, and how much have you tried? I know when I was at the track I had horrable 60ft times and I could just feel it bog horrably but yet when I am on the street now messing with friends (get over it yea I said on the street... my street, my back road) I can seem to pull great and even they have said that I dont bog down.

For me at the track it was my first season at the track and the thrill and everything just never made for good reactions and drivng technique (sp).

If the DSI lever is not broken the DSI could still be inoperative.

Have someone start the car while you are looking at the lever, when the car is started it should pull the lever towards the front of the car.

If it does not move then the acuator is probably shot.

unless the dsi is stuck in the short runner position, it won't affect you off the line... it doesn't open until 5600 rpm with a stock tune.

^^^He has a 2004 model.
The 2004 factory tune switches the runners at 5,000 rpm.

^^ Yep, and I am wondering if he is experiencing the "typical" bog of the stock SVTF ?? Even with my tune, I still get a bit of it. I am not sure what else to tell you.
