    Need a little more info...:neutral:

    - How many miles on the motor?
    - Any aftermarket parts (ie. CAI, Headers, muffler, etc.)?
    - Lift or leveling kit?
    - Stock or upsized tires?

    Check the resistance in your injectors they should sit around 11-13 ohms, pull the connector and touch your multimeter to the prongs on the injector. Also check your fuel pressure, and check for a clogged exhaust, pull the cat and run her open headers for a trip. your maf could be dirty, so could your throttle body. alot of little things could cause a big problem. good luck
