It's that whole electronic/failing throttle body crap they went to. When I was puting the Vortech on my ex's 05 F150, the tuner she picked was having all kinds of issues getting around it, and so was SCT, we were all working on getting it tuned for a week, tons of detonation when we would let off the throttle, so we went and traded it in, with the Vortech still on it, a whole 4 weeks old and fully polished.

Well I took of the BBK and put on an AIRAID, and there has been absolutely no problems so far (24 hrs) maybe 3 trips. With the bbk the CEL was comming on every trip out. So we'll see if the airaid holds up. seems to be idling well, and crusing even better. my main reason for going the inexpensive, non-tune route was to just simply get a little better gas milage. But if this one fails me as we'll, I'll defintately be investing in a CAI/Tuner package deal from steeda or something. Thanks guys.

Just another FYI, I was told by a BBK distributor that the only problems with the BBK's were happening from the upper middle to the north east of the country, they were saying that something with the colder weather and the air type up there is causing a problem. could have been completely inaccurate, but i thought I'd throw that out there.

I have a BBK and my car was running lean when I put it on the dyno, however it wasn't due to the air intake, it was due to the fact that the fuel injectors were peaking out power wise.

This is the first time I've heard of that problem with an sn-95 model car.

Yup and that is the reason why I do not want to own one. That and the parts are so expensive.

Please post in the correct section, but you're having problems because your car probably isn't tuned correctly. Unless you're running big power there is not reason to put an aftermarket CAI on a V6, and if you're going to do so the car needs to be tuned for all modifications. The new ECUs are very picky, and any one thing can throw them off.
