where'd the throttle response go?

so in the past 2 weeks i have had the following done:

-seafoamed her through the vac hose, dumped some in the oil, and a can in the gas tank
- changed the oil, mobil 1
- drained and refilled the tranny
- switched from the 93 tune back to the 87

my throttle response sucks, i feel like i need to floor it to get her off the damn line now. i know i changed the tune, but i mean even coasting she doesnt react to the throttle that great. i mean did i do too much maintenance at one time on her? idk what else to look for? i mean she still runs, but damn i feel like she is in limp mode sometimes.

I clean mine every month or so. May not be really dirty, but sure doesnt hurt! And 16k is a while ago

Re: where'd the throttle response go?

How's the tire pressure? How about the gas - are you buying a name brand?
