The other day i was driving and went to make a u turn along the street. there was on coming traffic coming, so i punched the gas. my intake sucked in so much air the car bogged down sorta and took forever to accelerate. is this normal if you have an intake? this happens to me sometimes if i gas it too much too fast. thaks for your replies.

An intake wouldn't do that. need more info. What kind is it? Did you unhook your battery? Did you double check all sensor/wires? If a cp-e did you solder the wires or use ghetto connectors that came with it? Any other mods? A hesitation could be the computer or a sensor. Need input.

I really dont have any mods except that injen CAI. don't have the cp-e customizer or anything else. i looked at the wiring of everything and everything is correct. on the CAI, all there is, is that ecu/sensor that plugs over the hole on the pipe of the CAI.

ATX or MTX ? My ATX sometimes reacted oddly when punching the gas.. as if it was in the wrong gear at the time and wouldnt shift down etc.. Havent had that problem in my new MTX unless I forget to downshift :D

Only thing I could guess is the RPMs dropped down to far by the time the clutch disengaged. You WOULD hear the intake suck in air as the car tries to go, but if the RPM is low it wouldnt move.

Can you reproduce the problem? If not its probably nothing *wrong* and just a fluke.

That's happened to me twice with the full MAFci since May. Exactly as you say. I thought, "Okay, I'm 80% throttle and it's not going anywhere, plus these people must think I'm an idiot." Then it kicks in as assumed. Only times its happened when I give it lotsa gas, as you mentioned.

Did you plug all the vacuum lines? If I remember correctly theres a few vacuum lines which get removed from the stock air box and need to be plugged. That'd do it.

I highly doubt that this is an intake related thing I've never experieienced it with my Injen unless I let the clutch out too quickly without giving it enough gas. And believe me, I've had plenty of opportunity to test something like this ;) So either you dropped the clutch to early or the TCS came on.

did the tires chirp even a lil bit?

For me, (6speed atx), I can chirp the tires a bit before tcs kicks in, and chirp I mean enough to leave a distinguishing mark in the road. If I'm in gravel I can make a good crater before tcs tells me to stop digging holes :sarc:

I think it could be tcs also, but in my car, the tires will spin a small bit before the prs kicks in. (and yes I call it prs, not tcs :goon: )
