this is a common issue. I've heard to disconnect the battery and reset the computer so it can learn the new set up but it doesn't always work.

Sounds like a MAF sensor problem. Did it get dusty/dirty when you installed the CAI? Is it reconnected properly?

Check the MAF and clean it off... See how it performs and what brand intake did you go wiht ?

Fujita intakes are known for this issue quite often and it is said that fitment is another common issue with their product. Have you run into that also?

Is it an oiled filter or dry filter? The oiled ones tend to cause issues more often then the dry ones.
