For the install of the K & N i just got to it. I didnt unhook the battry, just went at it. Took off the wheel, took out th inner fender, took off MAF, pulled off the stock intake, then stuffed the K & N in the hole, put on the MAF, and got everything tight. Now it sounds like a jet taking off.

here it is. plain and simple.
use an airbox mod....CAI....ductape....whatever you want.....thats not what causes the cel.
its the OIL ON THE FILTER that causes the cel....

if you put an oilless filter on, regardless of what method its installed on.....your chances of getting a cel go down like a cheap hooker.

get some maf cleaner.....clean your maf, replace your oiled filter with a dryflow.

I just got the XTC intake. I had a hard time installing it. For some reason it would not fit right. I had a K & N last year and install was 30 minutes, where as here it took me 3 hours. I had to modify the pipe some to get it to fit correctly. Good intake overall though, sounds really good. Put bottom back on the air box though for the winter but still screams more with the cone filter over the stock one. Good luck.

props on knowing whats up.

MAF cleaner works fine if you can find it (none locally here), but you can also use sensor safe electronics cleaner. CRC makes some and is pretty easy to find about five bucks.

If my account ever gets activated(please read admin) the weekend I am going to install my K&N and will try to get some picks of how to clean for all who haven't got a clue.

ps whats up to all being my first post and whatnot

warning about injen

I installed the injen intake on my o7 SS, granted it was the first time ive installed one but i ran into a fittment issue. The bracket on the hood that the support strut (gas piston thing) is attachected to under the hood is digging into the top of the intake tube when the engine torques. the intake braket where the tube connects to the rubber bushing sits all the way down and same where is meets the throttle body at the other end. Im getting an Import trenz carbon fibre hood and intend to remove the gas strut so it wont be a future problem for me but i thought you guys should know.(PS will post pic when i can)

This sounds like the most logical fix for this issue. Due to the MAF sensor being located so close to the intake filter, the oil blowby may be effecting the sensor thus, throwing the CEL. The dryflow filter would be the best option if this were the problem.

Now, if the overall design of the intake is mis-engineered, then here's another possible solution. Due to the MAF sensor being so close to the filter, maybe adding about a 3-5 inch longer piece of piping between the filter and the MAF sensor could help give you the distance necessary to not throw that CEL. For those who don't know: A MAF sensor reads a certain amount of air (sometimes temp as well), and relays that back to the ECU to compensate the fuel dump into the chambers for proper mixture. Now, if that MAF sensor is located right next to the air filter, the ECU will read so much air coming into the intake manifold that it will dump more fuel than necessary (extra fuel consumption, noncombusted fuel causing black soot coming out the pipe...etc).

The engineering that goes into designing intake pipes should take into account the distance necessary to keep a good range on the A/F meter for the ECU to compensate appropriately. Sadly, it seems that if it's not the oil issue blowing by and onto the MAF sensor, I believe it's a poor engineering design on the manufacturers of the intakes themselves.

**Suggestion: Try the electrical parts cleaner and replace the filter with a dryflow. If that doesn't solve the problem, attempt to add a slightly longer length of pipe at the end between the MAF sensor and the filter. Now, if that doesn't work...........complain complain complain to the manufacturer of the intake and tell them about the issues you're having.

Good luck.

okay, after reading all of these posts and some on ss.com, no matter what intake i get, the CEL has a good chance of coming on?

because i want to either get the AEM of INJEN CAI, but dont really want to deal with the hassle of the light.

If the AEM has the dryflow filter, I would go ahead and get that.

Anyone on here with the AEM have CEL issues?

I have been running the AEM for 10 000 KM , no cel, bogging or anything like that. The car runs perfect and is slightly quicker. Take time on the install and make sure everything is nice and tight and put back together properly (MAF etc) and chances are you'll never get a cel.

You do not need a BOV on a SC. You do not have lag like a turbo so it would be pointless. Just a waste of money and probobly an add that would do nothing for performance.......BOVs are designed to release excess pressure so that the turbo can keep its fins spooling. If you put it on a SC, you will actually lose that pressure you are building from the start (the whole idea behind a SC is to have constant pressure from start to finish). Turbos need that small lag release to keep boost.

If you're going turbo, then get one. It will be a significant difference in boost potential and will help against lag. S/C engines just don't need it b/c the air is recirculated right back into the manifold to keep constant pressure. Turbos lose pressure when you release the throttle (shift) and having to build that lost boost back up is the lag.

Are you twin charging your system?
