Default Car falls on its face when i floor it!?

When I floor it at about 2000rpm to 4500rpm, the car falls on its face for a second and then it picks up? It never did this until I put a new intake manifold( Skunk2) on. Has anybody had this problem before? If so, how did you fix it? If not, then any input is helpful!!!

Do you have a vac leak? Since you just put on a manifold, I'd check that first.

I dont think so, i checked everything like 4-5 times. I had to jimmy a bigger diam. hose to the fuel pressure regulator.

the vaccum hose slipped off the back of my manifold and it did the same thing.

well i hope you replaced the manifold with a new gasket! There can be a leak in your gasket. I'd say go with hondata, its the BEST! I have them in my car too, and it gave me awhole lot more power.
