    cold air intake, body lift, suspension lift.
    how about a pic? check all of your hoses and plugs... i changed the filter on my cai and one of the hoses slipped off and my truck wouldnt run worth a crap...
    perhaps you need to reset the values in the computer, disconnect your battery for about an hour and then reconnect it and start your engine and try to hold your rpms at 2000rpm for a few minutes. but if you have wires or hoses disconnected or missing this will not help...

    Make sure the vacuum line from the fuel pressure reg. is attached to the intake tubing.
