I had something similar. Its at about 45mph and in 4th gear (mines an automatic SES) If I give it more gas, it goes away. What the Steeda Tech told me was that the computer cannot decide whether to shift or not. Almost like the CAI changed the shift points in the computer due to more air being dumped in. Ford tech told me that it shouldnt hurt the car and if it continues, put the OEM air box back in. I kept the steeda CAI in and just know to keep accelerating past 45, to about 50, and I never have to deal with it. How do you like you're CAI? I'm getting 41mpg on the interstate, and around 31 around town.
