How is it at idle? How is it when cruising? Is it at part/wot?

If you pull both battery cables and touch them it'll ground out the system and reset immediately. Just make sure you pull both. Touching the hot and cold while it's still hooked up with cause a catastrophic short.

After reset try doing some hard starts (read as WOT) and then some cruising to fill those adaptive tables back out.

it idles fine, & cruises fine, it's under WOT that it sound and feels rough, and say when I'm cruising at 40 and I want to ease up to highway speeds, it's a little choppy there too.

Give me a call if you want. Its easier to explain on the phone.

After you reset your computer you want to take it easy so your computer learns. You start off at light throttle and work your way up to wot.

so to reset the ecm by the fuse pulling method, do I just pull out the ecm fuse and put it back in? Also, is it in the fuse box by the battery?

Yes its by the battery. Pull the fuse, turn key to on position. Turn off, put fuse back on. Start truck and let computer find idle before driving.

That's exactly what I meant (thus the read as WOT comment). I point is that after reseting the computer needs to relearn cruising behaviour as wel as what to do when you get on it.

Update: Well, the truck is back to running normal with the Airaid intake tube into the factory airbox with a K&N drop in filter. I did put on a new IAT snesor with the cone filter setup, and it still ran poorly. I guess my computer just didn't like all the extra airflow??? This was just a weird circumstance!

Anyways, I'm still happy with the Airaid intake tube, and the truck still looks, sounds, and performs great!!!

Thanks for all the replies!
