Cold air intake

So I recently installed a cold air intake on my 06 3.0 and I love the engine response and the sound it makes at full bore, but it’s now running lean. I’m getting three codes; P2187, P2177, and P2179. Is there anything I can do to get it to balance the afr again? Is this problem going to ruin my engine? Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance

Thank you so much man! I just installed it and still have to clear the codes, but I’m looking forward to not having any more codes 😊

Pleas let us know if it worked for you. As stated in my write up, I did that when I 1st installed my cai and when I fired it up, I never got a code for it. The only code I get once in a while is due to my gutted cats and only when I use cruise control on long trips.

Update on the fix.
Since installing the reducer, I have not had any codes come up. Thanks again for the post on how to fix it.
