not sure exactly what is going on, but when i installed my Intake the sound was heaven and the gas mileage was even better. something got f'ked up somewhere so check the install and try again. if youve done this already, then just take the Intake out and see if it works then.

I had the Injen for almost year and a half. I don't have the problems that you're noticing. Best thing is to put your stock air box back and drive for a week. You can gauge your gas milage. Then, reinstall the Intake and compare. Good luck.

Check your install. Make sure all hoses are connected correctly. Then, diconnect the negative terminal on your battery to reset the ECU. If it is installed correctly, this should take care of your CEL and allow your ECU to detect more air coming in and adjust accordingly.

wow i got my Injen CAI like 2 months ago... im so glad i didnt have any problems.. exec809657
ur exactly right. it sounds ultimate... i love it... and my gas mileage went up when i drive economically, but when i race, of course it burns more, because i've opened up the engine by adding the Intake..

for the guy with the check engine light. disconnect ur battery for about 5-10 min. and then reconnect and you should be fine.

While you're on the subject, I'm finally about to get the Injen CAI for my 00 GTS. How exactly do you reset or break in the computer after the CAI installation? Do you disconnect the battery... drive around moderately for a while... let it idle for a while...floor it while in neutral or let it sit for a month?
