short ram question

This topic has probably been addressed BUT...the parts dealer at the Toyota dealership told me that if you install Injen Short Ram the check engine light "could" come on. Is this true or is he just trying to get me to have them install it for $150.

For the Short Ram ... it is a very small chance. You can install it yourself...very very easy. I did .. never get CEL light.

whne mine was installed i had my CEL come on...for like a day. the computer had to get used to the idea that it's there...no problems ever since. love my Short Ram.Injen seems to have the least problems with CELs from all the forums and threads i've read.

I am new to ecelica and I am from Tomball TX as well, I installed a K&N ShortRam last Friday, I used this site as guide to purchase and opted for K&N anyway, I am not disappointed more aggressive engine sound, clean look and awesome throttle response, anyway, the install is easy, so save the $150, however I am checking for and error I believe exists in the photo gallery for the Injen Short Ram install pics, the OBD charcoal canister seems to be connected improperly on these images, I am compiling a document post somewhere on here so others may agree, or prove me wrong either way just trying to be helpful. Hope to have it done by Sunday or Monday, just be sure these lines are connected properly and that you place black tape over the unconnected "blue" electrical connector as a seal against accidental shorting or contamination, then zip tie it in a safe spot (K&N seems to have forgotten this connection is useless and instructs it to be connected and my CEL came on due to this but its off and works awesome now)

I have a 2000 gts auto (dont laugh), should i get Injen or AEM Short Ram? I heard that AEM is better for autos. Is this true?

I think a check engine light is natural if you put
your Intake on,just like mine,streetproto and black panther.it does that I think because of the new air flow going to the system.All you need to do is take off your negative battery for 10 secs. it resets and turns off engine check. rofl rofl rofl
