wow..that sux..i have problem with power too but mine is lacking..when i slam on the gas it just delayed for 1-3 sec before it kick it..i think it's becuase of the hot weather nebraska been having..but about ur problem...if the dealer said nothing wrong then go to a different machanic and have them check it out..if you have CAI then put ur stock back and see if it still do that..but if you have stock then don't know what to say..but Good Luck..
