Sooo I was under the hood and.......

....cleaned the motor with some brake cleaner and simple green. Noticed that there is a small pool of oil in the valley (i'll save that for another discussion). I also cleaned out the inside of the intake from the air filter down to the compressor wheel. Put everything back together and made a "dump run" to throw away our trash. It seemed (might be me) that it had significantly more "pep" and needed less effort on the acc. pedal. Can anyone explain this to me. Truck is STOCK.
