Default Sluggish acceleration

I have a 2005 Magnum RT that is sometimes sluggish when I try to accelerate on the highway. I had the fuel injectors cleaned but that didnt seem to do anything. I was doing some research and came upon an article about the throttle positioning system. Does anyone have any thoughts on if this could be the problem or if it could be something else. Also if it is the tps how do you adjust it?

the car has adaptives that adjust to your driving styles. if you drive slow most of the time, the car responds slow. if you drive it like a race car, it will respond like you want.
