Not to rain on your parade or anything, but most of that is in your head. Do you have numbers to prove any of it? There has been threads/posts about this, some guys are running close to 350 AWHP on the stock airbox still, with pics and dyno that show this. Just a thought though.

You need to pull the code and see what is up... That will dictate your next move.

It would seem that way. But I guess if you are gangster that is how it goes. I think we need to find us an interpretor so we can understand that crap.

As goofy as he typed it he is absolutley correct. Don't just clear codes left and right, if something is messed up and you keep clearing the code you could end up with some serious issues.

777 go to the newbie forum and read the stick about CAIs and intakes...

I can almost garentee your car didn't get any faster and it may have even lost a little bit.

A good short ram wont give you problems. A cold air with no tune will give you problems. The only plus you'll get out of a short ram is that you'll probably hear your turbo spool from inside the car.

By disconnecting the battery to get rid of a CEL, you could be ignoring a serious problem. The CEL is there for a reason, not to be ignored. Get the code read and take care of the issue before it becomes an even bigger problem.

Just to clarify, I suggested the battery code clear because he said that the filter was improperly secured and popped off leading to a CEL. The ECU will often slip into a "safe mode" triggered by bad (low octane) fuel and not return to a regular mode untill the ECU is reset. It was this line of thought that led me to try the reset just in case the CEL was a "something is wrong with the engine and I am in a safer mode" message from the ECU.

Now that the light is back, agree that there is something that needs to be checked out. Pull the code and then go from there.

I would try and get either the stock BPV or some other type, and get rid of the boost controller also like stated. That could possibly fix everything there, but the tune would definetly help also.
