I've had my GXP for a whole day and a half now and the last time I drove one was back in February which was a loaner car the dealer gave me to drive while my 06 was being delivered. from what I remember, which gave me turbo fever and made me hate my 06 ever since I drove it off the lot, the GXP had great pick up pretty much the second you step on the gas. well, mine does not seem to have the acceleration the other one did. with the loaner, I remember cruising at real low speed in 1st or 2nd and I could give it some gas and it would put you back in your seat right away. mone does not. it seems it accelerates slowley for a second or two and then takes off like a bat out of hell. I saw that the charge tube before the intake wasn't flush with the pipe so I loosened the clamp, pushed it in and tightened it good and I want to say it's a bit better but still no way near the low end torque I remember. I think the loaner was an 07 and it had 60k miles and was beat up a bit. could it possibly have had a tune and that's my problem? I'm not looking to race this thing but the acceleration was very impressive and that's what I was hoping for. any help would be appreciated. oh, and while it's not taking off, the boost gauge stays on 0 and doesn't seem to increase until about 3k rpm.
