sticky throttle?

00 GTS, car is cold, on startup when you give it gas to get her moving, the car sounds like it is starved for gas (almost going to stall), then at about 2500 RPMs the engine gets gas and it takes off. Pedal is about 2 inches down.

anyone have this b4?

do you have an auto and a CAI? i have this same problem, usually just need to give it some gas and then let off, the Intake will suck like crazy, and then she'll be ready to go, don't know why this happens, kind of annoying. i can have it floored and barely move till 2.5k like you said, then it takes off!

if you have an aftermarket Intake, its normal because of the MAF sensor misreads, get a TPR Intake instead thumbsup

this might be a noob question, but does a CAI affect stick like it apparently does auto?
