    I'm not saying this because I'm an intake hater. I myself have a K&N Typhoon short ram. If you have your stocker, try putting it on. Some intakes tend to skew the MAF signal.

    Ah hah! Please ignore my previous advice. Didn't know you had a FMIC.

    Check that the air cleaner isn't clogged, or leaking air from it's connection. Check the MAF plug for water, or bent pins. Also check that the wires aren't pinched anywhere. Aside from that, since you already replaced it with a new one, I would say it's a tuner issue.

    Tighten your gas cap? Loose gas cap may turn the check engine light. It says so on the gas cap.
