C.A.I. Help
Can a C.A.I. make your car run lean? I just had my car in the shop and they said it was my Intake. Yet they replaced a different sensor. Injen C.A.I.

lean = a lot more air than gas in the mixture ratio

i had a problem once with my car running lean. I have AEM CAI though. I just cleaned the sensor and re-set the ECU and everything is perfect in the world

You chose Injen because it makes your car run lean? Isn't that bad on the motor?

actually there is a way to fix it but its not the best economical option. PFC will allow you to fix the problem because of the control you have over air/fuel settings.. ( correct me if im wrong) or try blue bombers mod (cheaper way but requires do it yourself modifications)
