Intake Help..

Hey all..So anyway i got a custom intake not much bigger then stock,and still got same IAT adapter being used. My problem is i keep throwing a code says im running lean...w.e...lol...although it sometimes comes up quicker depending on my drivign in these mountains...anywho is there any way to trick or adapt my engine to run more gas.I have had a MAP sensor fault once..would a MAP that allowed more presure work?Thanks all!.kyle

Some aftermarket intakes throw codes from the MAF sensor, are you running an oiled filter?

clear the code, disconnect the battery, wait 15 minutes, then try things out

when you say you clean your intake regularly what does that entail? Constantly cleaning and re oiling your air filter? if your filter has too much oil then your MAF sensor throws codes because its taking some oil into the manifold.

^ yes pics plz
