Icon5 Possible tuning problem?

I have noticed when driving at lower RPM's my car seems to no have the power it should..from a stop to about 2500 RPM's ish it feels like it just doesn't want to move but after about 2500 rpms you can feel it take off it's noticeable difference and I cannot figure out what is wrong..I suspects maybe the tuning but I dont have the time or money to get it looked at and there not be anything wrong..wasn't sure if someone may know what is wrong..I also checked the air filter to make sure that wasn't a problem it was pretty clean and all spark plugs look like they are in good shape..also the car is completely stock with 167,000 miles its a 97 SH

What's it tuned with? Who tuned it? We need more details.

Re: Possible tuning problem?

Honestly your best bet would be to replace the ECU with a stock unit (P13). God knows what's going on in the one that's in there now.
