Throttle response with s&b intake

A couple of days after having the 12b33 recall done on my truck I decided to replace my factory intake with a s&b. It seems that there is less throttle response from a stand still than with the factory intake. Has anyone else experienced this?

Once the truck is moving there is definitely better response with the s&b. I'm just a little puzzled about the response from a stand still.

Any comments would be much appreciative.

Take that god awful clear plastic cover off that S&B (If you haven't already) and I promise you that you will see a gain in your throttle response. I'm sure others will chime in, but a few months ago there were a hand full of us that had a good forum thread going and people were even seeing better fuel mileage with the plastic cover off. Just give it a try I bet you end up leaving it off like the rest of us did!

Mass air flow mapping is thrown off quite a bit once an aftermarket intake is on. Sometimes the truck will freak out and not respond as it should. A great suggestion above, definitely worth a try in our opinion.

Took my cover off last night, definitely an improvement. Throttle seems a lot smoother and MPGs seem to have gone up a little as well.
