I recently went to denver for thanksgiving and my car (2000 gtp) felt slugish, but as soon as i got back to okc the car ran regular. Is there something that i can do to keep the engine from feeling slugish in the high alitude of denver since i planing on moving up there soon. :confused:

scan once you get there and you might be able to drop a pulley size because of the thin air.

Welcome to my world. Just look at it this way: FI cars don't suffer as much of a penalty as the NA ones do at altitude. Easy pickin's... :D BTW, if you have a scanner, I might need your services! :)

I don't have a scanner but plan on getting one before the spring. I am going to lay low for the winter and save for the much needed mods to = out the high altitude. :rolleyes:

Well, if I'm still in the area when you move out here, let me know if you need help with mods. I'm not the most experienced shadetree mechanic, but I am very detail-oriented. Anyway, if I get stuck, a quick call to the 'ol pops will set things right. :D

You might also want to reset your PCM when you get there to allow it to learn the thinner air.

I should think that a couple hours would be more than sufficient.
