my car was doing the same and after a litle research I got the car to feel the same all the time, everytime I step on the throttle now the response is instantinious even better than stock

I put new Denso iridium plugs and coils,
IATS relocation kit
SPAL electric fan conversion

the fan conversion made a big difference power wise especially when the motor is hot, also the IATS is responsible for making the car feel quick all the time due to timing advance regarding of the temperature

IATS is intake air temperature sensor,I got mine from Beastpower.com about 2 years ago,
SPAL is the brand of the electric fan that I installed in place of the stock one

being a twostroke engine tuner i can understand the air intake sensor but the life of me the fan one is clen over the top of my head as to why it would make such a difference

since the clutch type fan that we have is turning from the engine(parasitic drag)
when the motor/weather is hot it can take(rob) the engine as much as 20-25hp to spin the clutch fan,
going electric frees up almost all that hp

check to see if you have any codes with a peake code reader. If you don't have access to one, visit your local auto parts store, they generally will read them for free for you.
