Did you unhook the battery before you installed it?? It may have something to do with the MAF.

Don't know why the traction control light would be on....

Make sure you plugged in the MAF sensor. Also check for any vacuum leaks. When you get a CEL, VSC and TRAC turn off.

Sounds like something is unplugged. I know you said you did everything right but we all make mistakes. If its still on, hook up your stock one and see if it still happens.

Well I'm sorry to say but it is a horrible intake. Maybe they over oiled the filter from the factory so oil got on the MAF?

x2 this is true. If you really want to make the intake work, get a replacement Volant or TRD cai filter.

yea he works at k&n. but hes not one of the guys that builds them or specializes in the filter itself. hes an elctrician that works on the machines. so not much good that would do me.

Just check and recheck everything. Pull the battery cable to reset it and drive around to see if it comes back on.
