Just throwing this out: It sounds like a timing issue. Maybe your tune didn't load? ECU is trying to time the engine and running rich, thus the smoke perhaps?

Go back in the install manual, and look at step #136. Make SURE you spliced the blue, and tan wires to the new IAT sensor wires. It must be the solid tan wire, not the tan with black stripe. At least on the older (04) trucks, this was very easy to cornfuse.

Had no time this morning to check, and I was so tired lastnight from a tax all nighter previous night that I had to go to bed. I thought about that. I will check this evening. Redo that. Other than that I am at a loss. Everything is in place. I guess the wire could have not made good contact when I crimped it.

I'm loading a video to YouTube now I took this morning. It'll be up soon.

Randy,

I sent the link for the video to my builder to see if he has seen anything like that before... I'll let you know what he replys...

Well, it slid in and clicked with little effort on the bottom of the intake pipe. I did have to splice the two wires and I'm hoping I didn't get a good connection with one or both. Kind of a stratch but a possibility.

There should be an arrow indicating flow.

I'll check when I get home. I assumed the design wouldn't allow for installing backward.


Anyone know wether the fastlane pipeline CAI is designed to not allow, or to allow the MAF to be plugged in reversed?

Is there any hint of a smell along with that smoke?

Not really. Just like exhaust smoke I guess. Can't remember.

White smoke = Coolant
Blue smoke = Oil

I did notice the car seemed to pop once...other than that it looked like it was a pretty steady idle....

It was pretty cold and the car died before it could really start surging. But it would have. The smoke and surging gets worse when it doesn't die.

I just remembered something. The part on the Pipeline intake that the MAF plugs in to comes off the stock one. So you actually plug the snesor to the same housing base that's on the stock one.

Can't get it turned around.

Here is the reply I got back....Without plugging into it it's hard to say.* The smoke is steam, i.e. water or moisture from either the air or the engine.* I would guess the air.* It almost sounds like it's running lean, like a vacuum leak or something.* I know the tune is for a stock air box which he doesn't have, and it will no doubt change what the MAF reads...* Should be fixable though.* Obviously if everything is 100% with the install (usually isn't but you get lucky every now and then) it will be in the computer.

Dont know that it helps but...

My money is on a vacuum leak....did you make sure all the intake manifold gaskets were in good condition and seated properly?

Could be over/under torqued as well....

Oh. It helps by making me feel better that it's not burning oil at the rate it would appear.

I thought about the torque. I most definitely torqued each down to the 106 inch pounds it called for. Not sure why so loose, but I did as instructed. I half way thought at the looseness of the torque requirements, that the pulley being pulled downward could make the bolts in the front a little looser?
But it never calls to retorque them so I didn't. I assume they take that stuff into account.

Also check it out. The MAF connector won't allow it to be in backward.

All of the LS series intakes I've installed require a 2 step torque process along with the correct sequence of tightening it down.

If you did the 106 inch pounds ( not that it's a lot of force ) all at once...it's possible you jacked up one of the gaskets.

Trouble shooting from 100s of miles away is so much fun

Hell, my car is only 22 miles away from me and it might as well be 100s.

But, I did it in a cross alternating sequence the way it called for.





What are the chances I installed my MAF sensor the wrong direction 6 months ago when I did my headers and CAI and never really knew it? I'd think I would have known it by now right? If it's backward then the plug would obviously be.

If something was screwed up with your MAF your car would let you know with a nice service stabiltrak message. Ask me how I know

Did you torque the manifold to 106 inch pounds all at once or in a 2 step pattern? Say 50 inch pounds first pass, 56 the second?

I can't say how much the first time, but yes, I just tightenedthem with a small ratchet first a bit, then went back and torqued. It was certainly not 50 inch pounds, but it was much tighter than by hand.

It can't be plugged in wrong but it can be installed upside down. I installed a K&N cai and that happened to us. Just a shot.
