    James Barone Racing SRI Throwing CEL - 2018 CX-5

    Has anyone else put a short ram intake in their CX-5? I put it in on Saturday, started it up and took it for a test spin with no issues whatsoever. This morning driving to work as soon as the car got up to temp it threw a CEL and the car was bogging (like it couldn't breathe). I was told by James Barone directly this would not throw a code. Anyone care to shed some light.

    Did you reset the ECU after installing the intake? The intake introduces new air-fuel ratio parameters so the ECU needs learn them.

    Problem solved! Simple as taking the MAF sensor out, blowing it with compressed air and putting it back in. Back to loving the intake

    My own naivety here, but what does the new intake change with the car?

    Gives the engine a little nicer and louder sound without being obnoxious, better throttle response and yet to be proven better hp and torque. From the butt dyno I don't feel that it's faster but the throttle response is definitely better...especially in sport.
