Well, its been a couple of days now after i did a "relearn" on the throttle body. Car seems to have gone back to normal. Shifts less agressive now and hangs around the correct rpm range. I will post the hpt file when i get home.
Sorry for not getting to this sooner, i work 2 jobs and work every day.
I used to have access to a great scanner when I worked at Firestone but not anymore.
I ended up flipping the key to the run position and held the throttle all the way down for 5 seconds.

drove it and it hasn't done it in a while now. I'm hoping its fixed, if not I will need to invest in a scanner.
I need one anyways.
Not yet, turns out that my laptop has a broken screen. My kid dropped it and my wife didn't know it had a broken screen till I turned it on.:dunno:

I was recommended by Jorge at Top Gun Tunning to swap out for TR6 NGK spark plugs and he should be able to squeeze out maybe another 5-10 horses. probably going E85 some time this year.
When my wife sits in the passenger seat, the passenger airbag light still says it's off. When I sit there, it works right. My thought is that this crappy leather has hardened so much that she doesn't stretch it enough for the sensor to detect her. I had the sensor recalibrated not too long after...
Ok, so my wife has managed to break the flip key and lose the regular key... So now I need to buy new stuff. What solutions have you guys found over all these years? Where have you found the good prices on both styles?
I have a 2009 G8 V6 3.6L that has the common Airbag Fault on the DIC. I had the auto shop teacher at the high school I work at scan the codes and gave me a B0081 and U0170, which are the typical ones for a bad PPM under the passenger seat; I ordered a new module. The shop teacher cleared all...
