ok so i went out today to see if i could resolve this problem. i first started with disconnecting the battery to see if it would make any difference at all. it didnt help. So i removed the intake pipe and flipped it around. took it for a road test and immediately got the wrench power-train fault light. come to find out steeda did a good job making sure it could only go on one way...and ford was even nice enough to engrave flow-> on the maf sensor...so it can only go on one way. any other ideas? im stumped

As stated before..... You probably need a new Maf or o2 sensor. You can either blindly replace them or get it tested at a shop

My guess would be the MAF... I can't imagine the 02 sensor being bad in such a new car. I didn't even have to touch the 02 sensor in mine, but I have an 06...

i've got the same problem. not sure the rpm and it bogs down from the start. when i have my stock intake on it's fine. and if i take the resonator off the airbox it does the same thing. so really, i guess all it needs is a tune. i hear people say that this intake works better with a tune but no one tells you why (cause the first thing people think is yea this is cool!) my friends car has the same intake and her car does the same thing.

i believe the tune is so the computer can 'adjusted' for the increase in incoming air.

Yea that's basically what I'm doing now. Ever since I put my intake on I've been getting 38mpg! So I ain't taking it off
