I probably have explained this a thousand times here on this forum A lean code will not go away by just clearing the codes! You are getting a lean code because your long term fuel trims are up in the high +20's to +30's. Normal LTFT is usually -/+5 to zero. Either the maf need to be tuned or you need to get rid of your intake. Running lean is the worst you can do to your engine. It will overheat and detonate and will cause misfires.

I had the same intake. Threw the same codes. Got a full refund for
K and N. took pics of my destroyed intake, emailed them a copy of my receipt where I got it and it was a done deal. They sent me a check for the amount I paid for it.
