Wat these guys check for leaks specially map sensor seal/also would be a good time to clean it if u havent already.Other then that if the intake is 3" id without a cpe I bet that could be the cause like these guys already said too air straightener SHOULD fix it.


EDIT also u gotta look close at the maf seal a hairline crack is all it takes. Ive had one go one me and it boged out till i restarted the car.
I now keep two spares lol

Okay so i tightened my MAF down and it somewhat smoothed it out a little, the driving is smooth, but the idle still sounds a little rough to me!
I ordered the Straightener and i probably will take the intake out over the weekend until i get it in the mail.
Also this way i can check if the engine light is caused by the intake itself or if the little tube that attaches to the intake (not the big one that goes to the TB) is lose.

Alright so did s quick swap back to the stock airbox and everything seems to be back to normal!
Smooth idle and all, so I think I'm gonna order the air straightener and wait till after winter with the intake!

Surprised no one had mentioned it, it isn't required but did you disconnect your negative battery terminal for like 15 minutes? I did this and it smoothed out the idle and shifts started taking place at higher rpms after the first 50 or so miles. Also I being a picky person took it upon myself to remove the maf and put it in a ziplock bag full of isopropyl alcohol and shook it around for a minute or 2 then let it dry on a paper towel for a few hours. Helps make sure no small debris are throwing off your air flow readings. Cheap and quick potential solutions.

Isopropyl alcohol drys different from other liquids especially when it comes to electronics. dip a q tip in some and wipe it on a table, see how long before it evaporates. I never had a cel from my maf even after it was soaking in a bag of it for an hour. The higher the percentage the safer it is for this purpose though, I'd stay at or above 85%
