I really don't think this is a MAF issue...when the above poster see's Mike again I'm sure he will take care of him, then he can post about the fix. We will be installing one of these locally on a car and I'll get feedback from him as well. Stick with the stock MAF until further notice, in the past I have seen a lot of mildly modified cars/trucks get into trouble by going with a larger/aftermarket MAF. The tunability issues seem to be a real problem, it is tough getting the drivability to match stock with these units...this may be a result of quality issues with "some" aftermarket MAF's as well.

I put my stock airbox back on for some warranty work this past week (just a precaution), but might put the intake back on Friday and see if I feel a difference, once again. I really do like the design of this product and hope it will work out. Unfortunately, getting to a track is a PITA for me, which is what Mike suggested I do to get some real proof of this thing doing its job.

After your guys installed the New Era CAI did you have any issues with your engine light?

I took my car to a pro shop for tuning and they were impressed with the temps when driving the car (they actually drive and tune as well as Dyno tune). I could see on the computer while we were driving the temps of the air going down - awesome. They were however concerned about the short distance of the intake and the placement of the MAF, not a big concern nothing that can't be tuned to compensate. All in all I think even my tuner was impressed with the New Era CAI.

Here are some suggestions to a version 2 of this most excellent intake. Can you make the filter intake area bigger to extend to the farthest points atop the radiator? Why, so that you can make the tube longer and snake further to the right? What happens at higher RPM's is that the intake tube is too short for the MAF to pick up the air readings consistently. Not a big problem at all - who really ever drives their car in the 5500 RPM range - rare and only during racing. So, this suggestion is just tweek to increase performance. I am happy with the current design, just thought I would throw my two cents in after doing about 7 Dyno's and really checking out the performance of the the Intake.

I have this intake and regularly drive mine and shift at that high of an RPM...i have noticed the rough-idling thing after it was installed...and it has me a bit worried

mines fine

it has a very slight surge (maybe 50rpms up or down) at idle but absolutely no driveability issues

I'm primarily driving road course conditions and am ALWAY'S into the top end.
(5k RPM) plus.

Yes I have the same surge and miss at constant speeds especially when lightly backing off on the throttle to maintain speed. Especially notice at 30-45 mph in 3rd or 4th gear. I call it the herky jerkies. I also get this with the stock intake on but only when cold, after it warms up it's good. My theory is that with the true CAI OTR installed the engine is getting fresh cooler air as if when the engine is cold. I had it in the dealers but they found nothing wrong. Mike at New Era and I have been trying to figure it out but nothing yet.

Received my New Era CAI on Thursday. Took me exactly 22 minutes to install it (wife timed me). I know this cars acceleration very well and after I installed it I noticed the low end and mid range power was noticeably better. I really like the low end power increase. Plus, the thing looks bad ass. I was at a cruise in tonight and everyone was commenting on this thing and how cool it looked. One guy told me he is taking off his "other" aftermarket CAI and putting this one on just for the looks alone.

Personally I think its the best CAI out there.




No surge problems. No idle problems. The only thing different is the power increase.

I just don't understand how some guys are getting great results w/ this intake while othere are not. Mine still has the 'herky-jerkies' and I'm tempted to put mine up for sale on the classifieds. Then again, I just might give in and get a tune and hope that eliminates the problem.

I don't think it's the intake but we, and 1 other guy that I know of, have something going on with our stock setup that is sensitve to cold air. When the car is cold with the stock intake I get the herky jerkies but it's better after warmed up. With the New Era the intake is supplying cool air all the time so we get the herky jerkies all the time (at steady low throttle speeds). I like the accelleration with the New Era but the drivability sucks. The dealer told me nothing is wrong but I'm gonna keep trying to find the reason for this! If you get a tune there goes your warranty!
