well i had a CEL last night and after i capped off a tube with duct tape i'm good to go. make sure all your connections are correct and tight. maybe it's not Intake related...try seeing what code it is. thumbsup

you may want to try cleaing your mass air flow sensor in the Intake - the same problem happened to me, Toyota charged me $90 to clean it for me, ive heard its not easy and you can damage the sensor easily.. you may want to just take it in..
