What the engine is seeing is more air, like you’re stating. However, it sees more dirt because of it. It’s best to leave the factory filter in it. Filters the most dust out.

It probably has a p2291 code or a p008a code. Low rail pressure while cranking and low base fuel pressure. From here on out, do as already stated, bleed the air out at the upper filter before...

Please don’t post about that stuff here. If you’ve got a question about someone’s product, give them a call and they’ll answer it properly for you. There’s too much heat on these poor companies now.

Ezlynk emissions equipped tuning is going to be your best bet. The canned tunes will add hp, it’s just generic tuning and there’s much better available.
