Q: Revving to high when I accerlerate hard on 2003 Acura CL

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Just change the stock intake and now its revving too high when I accelerate hard on the gas pedal. Ill be going 40mph and itll be at 2000rmp, but when i step hard on the gas pedal, it jumps to like 5500rmp and dont really feel the push.

I didnt step on the pedal too long because I was worried after seeing the rmp rising like crazy. Is this normal??

re-check your installation and adjustments , all electrical connections.Is your engine really doing what the tach is saying? if so , sounds like clutch/trans slip.Worst case, put other intake back on , see if problem goes away.
