    Is it possible you have an exhaust restriction? Maybe the catalytic converters? Just an initial thoutht.

    The catalytic. Converters are fairly new. What do u think it would be other than that cause I have no mufflers.

    Don't forget that your engine processor looks for exhaust pressure and adjusts performance accordingly.

    When performing a diagnosis such on your vehicle, you really need to eliminate the variables, such as going with the factory recommended equipment. Otherwise, you are dealing with guesswork. I know it's modified for a reason, It's just not doing you any good right now.
