Yes we are.

It is likely that your throttle plate needs a good cleaning (also time to think about catch cans if it doesn't have them already). Gunk build-up on there can cause this exact issue. A look at the tune wouldn't hurt either.

I would recommend a tune as well. Had the same issue about 4 yrs ago. Checked a bunch of things but finally got it tuned and issue went away.

If there is build-up on the plate, the ECM will have learned to compensate for the difference in positions. If the battery was disconnected, it would cause the ECM to default back to factory settings, causing it to have to re-learn the variance caused by the gunk and what not.

I just opened it up to look at the throttle body and it was all very clean...I cleaned it just to be sure, no change. Any other suggestions?

Have you had it smoke tested?

If you need a tune let us know. We are a COBB pro-tuner and can tune opensource as well. Don't know if you have an accessport or not, but if you're interested in one we have a special going for another week for $50 off a protube with the purchase of an AP. let us know if we can help.

Had some vacuum leaks. Got them fixed. It only bogs down once or twice after I go in neutral and then idles fine. Im guessing thats just the way its tuned?

Mine does that to but for safety reason I would get a pro tune. That way you know she's running right! And if ur car doesn't already have it get a wide band sensor as well AEM has a really good one for about 150

Long time since I had an update. Took the motor apart today. Had a blown tgv gasket. Replaced it and its running a lot better. Pretty sure I still need a tune though
