Im not sure why but my truck feels really sluggish lately. Mainly when I floor it it just doesnt feel near as fast as it was. It actually seems faster at about half throttle. The motor screams but it just doesnt seem to be going anywhere. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I replaced the plugs not long ago but im going to replace them again with some that come pre gapped at .30 if I can find some. How would I know if I have a bad coil pack?

i would think that if you changed plugs you would see some indication by the plugs if it were a coil issue or injector problem, also i would hope the ECM would pick it up and give you a light and code.
i would look closer for an air leak somewhere or a turbo problem that cant be seen by the ECM.
it could be any number of things

Some times the stock BOVs will go out if your running higher boost, or a small leak in IC piping. Do a boost leak test, boost leak tester will be your best friend when you own turbo vehicles.

I can't. It's an electric solenoid.
Why would it be any weaker than any other setup?

Sorry guys, i did mean Lower Intercooler Pipe

CAC = charge air cooler, lower intercooler pipe is part of the charge air cooler

i don't think the intake would make a difference unless the filters got clogged some how

Scap, i can see an electronic Blow Off Valve going bad since its electric

but im sure the ECU would pick up on this pretty quick

plus its only designed to hold stock boost

Just trying to spread some knowledge :)

might not always be the best............

No, it spikes, then tapers some.
