    So I removed the secondary air filter over the weekend. Everything was fine, I noticed a bit more pick up and better throttle response.

    Today I wake up to a Check Engine Light. Any thoughts? The only thing different from the previous 5 days is now the weather is 30 and raining/snowing, the past week has been in the 50's.

    I'm stumped, any help/thoughts would be appreciated.

    First thing I would do is check and make sure nothing got accidentally disconnected while you were removing the secondary filter.

    ....and it is SUCH a pain in the ass that they don't! Perhaps thats why their parking lots are empty at most ones I have ever been to, here in GA.
