    So I recently purchased a pretty built gsx that I intend to build for autocross and track. Ive owned it for a week so for the most part I'm still figuring it out. I've noticed on two separate occasions if I go to accelerate from a stop it's like the car has zero power. I'm talking scary oh sh** I'm gonna get plowed low power (even though rpms are around 2500). I am not sure where to start looking, I've capped all the vacuum leaks I can find, spark plugs are brand new, vehicle runs like a raped ape any other time. A bit sluggish out of boost but I figured that was to be expected. This almost feels like no fuel, except no check engine light, no bogging or what would seem out of the ordinary except I'm giving it gas and not going anywhere. I'll post the mod list when I can. Any help is appreciated thabks.
