Well I re-cleaned the filter and I can see clearly now the dirt is gone...anyways. lol the car seems to be smoother now that its breathing again. Amazing how just cleaning the filter can make it feel different.

Yeah, your car likes to breath.

Without the proper airflow to balance the air/fuel mixture, you'll lose power.
