Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

Is the lag happening when wanting to increase speed at all speeds?

Once through the lag does it take off and accelerate fine?

Any warning lights on?

Was the repair done to address this lag?

Have you monitored the fuel pressure during this event?

Hello again Chris here,

I am contacting you because the post has not been closed or rated. We have 7 days to get a post rated before it times out. When a post times out, that means its no longer on my active list (if you reply I never know it.) You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, but it appears you're not pleased, or need more help.

Let me help some more. Is there anything else you feel I could offer so you would be pleased with my help. I have the option to call you if that would be better.

Thanks Chris
