Exclamation Recently Installed K&N....Need some input!!

Recently I had installed a K&N air intake. After it was installed I disconnected the battery for a 5 minutes, reconnected it and let the truck sit idle for 20 minutes. Some people say that the computer has to re-learn the new air flow? So anyways, after driving it for a few weeks I kind of notice a power decrease. I don't know if it's just me or the 95 degree weather we've been having lately. I did notice when I have the pedal to the metal going through 4th gear my RPM's lag around 3-4000 for a few seconds and then picks up and goes. Everything else on my truck is stock. I was thinking maybe with more air coming in I need a straight through muffler to push it all air out and maybe that is the reason? Some input would GREATLY be appreciated guys. Maybe I should just install the stock intake?
