    I lifted my 2010 creemax with 7 inch suspension, 20x12 wheels, 305/55 20 tires, added a corsa cat back exhaust. When I accelerate from first to second aggressively, the power dies and traction control light flashes. Plus, the low air pressure light stays on and flashes occasionally. Help!

    Get a Hypertech speedo cal. You probably have a heavy tire and wheel setup. That's what I had to do with my 2012.

    Would that cause the loss of power?

    Yaw sensor or however that's spelled. With a lift that high it is out of calibration. Look it up, there are things you can do. Think it's something like adding a washer/spacer.

    The reason you loose power is the ecu is set up to cut power with loss of traction or sway.

    OK....I may be a little confused. When i lose power, I'm not spinning or leaning. It could be on a straight away simply gassing on it. As it hits second, the power dies and it takes roughly 4 to 5 seconds to return. The same with third. Are you saying a speedometer calibration should fix the issue?

    You need to do a zero point calibration. Zpc. This is most likely the fix you need. The dealer can do it for you, usually 100 bucks, or you can research it and do it on your own. This thread has the answer for you, but Dont take what you have to do lightly or you could meas your truck up. My scary little warning to you... I can tell you, I did mine successfully though.

    Doesn't always work. I did that, and had the dealer do it = zero results. When I calibrated the speedo with the proper tire size, most of that acceleration delay disappeared.

    Yeah the calibrator made my truck feel a lot better after 35s. Mine was shifting really weird before the hypertech too. Was your TC light blinking though? I think that's the dead give away with this guys truck though. Plus that 3-4 second delay in shifting from 1st to 2nd.

    The other thing you may want to check, OP, is the wires to you wheel sensors. Make sure they aren't stretched or loose.
