so how does it hesitate?

is the idle good?

More air is usually a good thing.

I would think that detonation would be a more normal thing at WOT considering the mod.

Jack around with the plug or wires lately? I think it may be spark issues honestly.

hesitates in second and third gear anywhere from 2k all the way to 380 0 rpms and all under hard acceleration..

the idle is right around 1200...

Have you ever changed your fuel filter? It's kind of an odd coincedence that it happened at the same time you installed your ram air though. I would imagine there is something off with your install. Double and triple check behind yourself before you move on to the fuel system. Check thing around the air inlet system as well. Maybe something came off by accident when you were installing it.

It may be a bad plug or something. Also get some fuel system cleaner. You shouldnt detonate with just a ram/CIA.

Buy 1 new wire and go through and test each one. Also check your plugs you may be getting a short. Also see if autozone can check you coil packs. They go bad. Also put ur stock intake back on. If it works fine then we know its a fuel issue.

But yea first thing to do it try and stick the stock intake back on. If all works fine you know the issue.
