Two suggestions...

1) Try pulling Fuse F2 (with the engine off), leave it out for 30 secs and then put it back. This will clear your long term and short term fuel mapping. (EDIT: I just realized that I don't know for certain that the fuses on the V6s are the same as the 5.7 and 6.4. Someone else can chime in if this is incorrect.)

2) Keep your foot out of the accelerator. A lot of people (me included) tend to bury the accelerator deeper/longer to hear the noise the CAI is making... :)



Good luck.

Who does #2 work for. I would say this is the issue. Enjoy!
