Intake tune

how much did it cost you to get the MAF to stop throwing codes due to an intake?

did you take it to a dealer to reflash it or did you do something else?

What kind of intake do you have? I bought my SS/SC with an Injen intake and it always threw a code. Switched to a ZZP intake and I haven't gotten a code yet. Also, make sure to disconnect to battery for 15 minutes before you start it up after installation.

Yeah, pretty much. Cheap route you can go is get the ZZP 1.0 PCM. That's like $100 and it's like a canned tune that will support your intake.

My RAW intake never threw any codes.

Also if you have to pay the same price for a tune regardless of whats been done since last time you might as well bend over and pull your pants down, cause your taking it right up the crap cutter.

Your initial tune is where the high dollar amount is spent, after that, minor tweaks as just an intake install should be no where close to another initial tune price.

But if thats the case, id buy a ton of stuff and put it on before re installing.

Also being said, I had my badmab header installed from my gmpp and retuned and got 11whp/11wtq.

If you really want a cheap tune to get rid of your intake codes, that's it. Read through the description.

Maybe see if there is someone in your area with hp tuners that might do it for a small fee. $200 Seems like a lot to pay just for an intake change.

you sure your intake has no leaks? if you had a decent leak in your intake, it would throw a code.. and even if you fix the leak and try to reset it by disconnecting the battery, it might not go away. you'll have to get it cleared. you could always try that. it shouldnt cost you anything.

this exact thing happened to me.

Thanks for all the input guys. I have a zzp intake but I think I'll try to find leaks first and disconnect the battery again. If not ill get a real tune as needed
