    A little help gents...

    Well I am pretty sure I know the answer but still wanted to check in with u guys... About a month and a half ago my buddy bought me an AEM short ram for a present... Well I had my mech install it.. For about 2600 miles it was fine till today when I was just about to build boost and had the engine light come on with a little shutter... (p0106) my mech said I should chang my mass air sensor... I kinda doubted that cleaned the mass air sensor... Took it for a drive and did it again.. Well I already put my stock intake box in my trunk to go back to the stock box tommorrow.. Any input???????

    P0106 refers to your MAP sensor (circuit low input), not your MAF sensor, so it makes sense that cleaning the MAF didn't do anything for you.

    Check the plug at the MAP to make sure it's tight, plus check to make sure it's mounted in the throttle body correctly and is screwed in right. If this doesn't fix your problem, you likely need a new one.

    Yes it is bad, stay out of boost as much as is humanly possible until you can either burn all of that gas out, or drain it all out yourself. But you you decide to boost or go into high RPM's you could damage your engine due to pre-detonation.

    it really doesnt do too much for you, just keep it out of boost, if you have a half tank you need to really top it off with 93
