BBK Cold air intake problem
Ok so I have had a BBK Cold Air Intake installed on my Mustang for 6 months now and no problems. Friday my engine light came on. I took it to Ford and they said it is running leans and to take the BBk Intake off. Well, I clld my dad in NC who is a senior Master Tec at Ford who has seen this way to many times with aftermarket intakes. He said it may be due to the fact i put reg. unleaded fuel in my car which contained 10% alcohol or something. He sugested running the fuel out then putting in a higher octain or fuel that does not contain the alcohol then Disconect the battery to reset the engine light. Then see how it does. I due normally run higher octain in the car and dont know why I put the reg. fuel in so I am hoping this is the problem
Has anyone else had any similar problems like this?

yes you need a tune for the intake, i recomend justin at vmptuning.com
05-09s need to be reflashed for every little thing you do
+1, you have to get a tuner or you will get codes all the time. Americanmuscle.com has a great selection. I hear that some 05+ CAI don't need a tune to use them but don't hold me too that. Grab a tuner and enjoy.
