    How long ago did you install the intake? If the MAF scaling is wrong.. that could do it.

    So the IAM probably just finished advancing, and now because of the cold air intake you are throwing lean codes.

    It's no big deal, but you either need to go back to stock, or go get the car tuned so the MAF scaling issue can be fixed.

    There's a reason why on the Cobb Map they say "STOCK INTAKE ONLY" in huge giant bold capital letters

    I'd say go back to stock, save up for some injectors, then throw the intake and injectors on and get an E85 tune! You'll be in the 330whp range

    Kevin, it looks like he has an STi so aren't the 550cc pinks enough for just a stage 2 tune?

    Yep, you gotta be tuned for that intake. I'd also suggest that you put the stock BPV back on instead of that RFL BOV.

    Yes.. they are 565cc injectors and not the "Pinks" you refer to... Those are top feed JDM injectors.

    But for a stage 2 E85 tune they are not enough. E85 you can run more boost, inject 30% more fuel, and advance timing.

    AND put down ridiculous numbers.
