Default Problem found!

After weeks of experiencing sluggish acceleration, poor idling, horrible fuel mileage and burning rich, I found the culprit that was causing everything. I decided to make a smoke machine to see if I had a leak anywhere in my intake after the mass air flow meter. Voila! I found a gaping hole in the box connected to the intake covered by a heat shield. If you're having any of these symptoms, check it out guys! I'm sure it's often missed!
