The extra voltage from this mod is minimal at best. For more voltage you're going to need a hotwire, but that's beside the issue.

Try pressure testing the intake when it's cold. I've seen cars run like shit because of vacuum leaks, when stuff warms up it expands, sealing said leaks.

i pressure tested it after i blew an intercooler pipe off on the highway. everything is good, it held pressure and when i tooke the blow gun off it all the air shot right back at me. i am at a total loss, maybe from lack of knowledge of the car. but it seems to me like im overlooking something small but its obviously important. ohh and i tested the vacum lines on the throttle body for leaks too. theyre fine.
