yea, something is definately wrong. I would think that your bottle pressure is to low, keep i mind that even though it might not be entirely empty not enough pressure can make you run rich thus causing you to be slower. Thats the only thing I can think of besides somethign else that is really wrong. Is this the first time it felt this way?

thanks for the help guys:thumbsup: i found the problem.. the nitrous solenoid, msd rpm switch and fule pressure safety switch were all wired wrong.. i dont know what my local shop did but thank god its working fine now.. some kid told me i dont need a fuel pressure safety switch cause its just gonna keep on cutting off my nitrous?? is this true?? he said that my motor will blow eventually once pressure drops.. will this happen to our rsx?? someone told me i need to tweak it too??:dontknow: i have no idea how to do this?? but anyways do we really need one?? let me know.. thanks:thumbsup:
