Question Seems like low power starting from a stop

I have not drove my dakota in a few months because I was waiting to replace the governor pressure sensor and solenoid and I have been driving our Volvo S80 turbo. Now maybe I am being paranoid because the Dakota has 220,000 miles or maybe its because I am used to driving our much faster more powerful Volvo but I swear its like it has no power starting from a stop. I replaced the sensor and solenoid last weekend and replaced the filter and gasket. The service engine light went off and I have checked, double checked, and triple checked the fluid in N after the truck is at normal operating temp and the fluid is perfect. Also there has not been one drip on my cement driveway so no leaks. I thought maybe its starting in second but wouldn't I get a service engine light or something. Wouldn't that be really noticeable? Anyway maybe I am nuts but any thoughts?
