Is there a way to keep my engine bay super clean? Like a cover for it or anything?

I know cleaning it works the best for me.. And as for the CAI maybe you should contact the company that you purchased it from? usually there is a warranty or troubleshooting involved for it. I wouldn't just buy another intake system, unless of course your money grows on trees.

I'm seriously confused haha. Like I just do not understand your logic. First off a CAI shouldn't be throwing codes. Second off your daily routine looks like you run through the desert, so I would say you should utilize an intake that at least covers the bottom of your filter: secondly I would instal a pre filter. Also fswerks is pretty much the same exact thing as what you have.

Third. Which should be before first, contact weapon R and ask them what's the deal. No one should have to clean their intake to clear a code.

Hold the OK button on the left side of the steering wheel as you start the car to read any DTC codes. The "TEST" mode will show lots of different screens, toggle up and down, there is a DTC code readout.

What codes?
