Lag when cold

Just rolled over 150k on Saturday and stock tunes. When cold or when lunch break comes up, basically sitting for a long time or over night, theres no power. Punch it and it just craws up to speed. However when warmed up, all responce is there.

Ive searched and no it doesnt smoke, lope, start up funny, or anything that shows any signs.

Just a lot of lag when cold...or ish.



Oil is Rotella 5w40 with rev x like additive. Its 1k away from my 5k mark to change it and was thinking of a different oil to run. or putting 15w40 back in.

Well I was gonna suggest Rev-X but you're already running it..........have you tested to see if you have an injector going down on you?

I would have said possibly FICM, but you've got one from BPD, right?

well ill change the oil first and see what happens. what would be a good oil thats not rotella and amsoil.

does the delco work fine? and stay with full synth or go convetional? it just seems that its kinda starting to happen as the oil is nearing its 5k mark.

I would never go back to conventional oil, but that's just me. I'm sticking with T6.

Run a contribution test on it and confirm you have good readings on all cylinders.
