Could possibly be stuffed up cats. Also note that the '05 CVPIs were the first year to have Throtte-By-Wire. It is more sluggish to respond that the traditional cable setup. My ex-boyfriend's 2002 CVPI feels a big more eager, as there is a physical bit of string attached to the 'go faster' bits. The transmission will not kick down as readily with the TBW setup, either. TBW is an inexpensive way to limit how hardcore the gearbox will change down... *foot down* Please hold while I check to see if you meet certain criteria for this request. Checking.......... Request granted. *Sudden downchange*
Also, your differential is a major player. If you've for some reason got 2.73's, your car will be a dog as it's geared more for lower RPM highway cruising. You could also have 3.27's, which is a good balance in my opinion... but I believe (and I can't recall if this is fact or not) there are also 3.55's, and a 4.10 setup that could be ordered as well.
The way that you check to see which differential you have is either by the diff tag (Near the drain plug on the pumpkin), or the less reliable, but usually correct door sticker. Said sticker will be on the round of the door itself, NOT the jam on the main body. It will say "Axle Code".
Let me know what your axle code is, and I will attempt to help you further.
