    Hello!

    I installed a K&N cold air FIPK and a TB spacer as well like a week ago. I love the noise and extra power I've gained and better MPG, but sometimes when I'm floorin' it, the engine seems to studder. This doesn't happen often luckily. I might just take it in to the shop.. love the products but don't like the occasional 'hiccups' I get when I'm accelerating fast. Kind of seems to counteract the point of buying it....right? haha

    Thanks! :D

    maybe you are running too lean now?

    with the intake and a throttle body, you get the increased air flow, but your injectors are still flowing at the same rate...

    did you disconnect the battery when you installed the intake? i think the instructions tell you to... it resets your ECU and with the new air/fuel ratio, it will reset itself...

    i had a similar issue when i first put my CAI and resetting the truck stopped the issues...

    Hmmm..pretty sure I disconnected the battery while I installed everything, but maybe I'm wrong.
    I'll disconnect the battery for a while and then connect it and hope it helps.
    I've read that the MAS could have something to do with it, but I made sure that it's secure.

    I'll try that out and hope it works.
