Hey all.... I think I did a no no!! I pulled my airbox out a while back, I was eyeballing this universal preformance air intake at advanced auto. Insrtalled it, drove around fine for awhile but now im getting this surging/putter almost to the point of engine shutdown at idle. There are some pieces that came with the kit that I didn't use (no instructions) maybe for other makes also that sensor for air temp is out, should I rig it into yhe new elbow? Or disconnect? Im going to replace the rigged intake I have b4 this prob. Any insight would be helpful sure does look preety under the hood would be a shame to take apart help!

Clean your MAF, and put the IAT sensor back in. I suspect the engine is getting cooler air than what it thinks it's getting, and cutting out.

So just those 4 philips screws and then what do I clean it with? I will clean the IAT and install it into the pipe. Any other pointers with the map? Don't wanna damage it

What you are talking about is more than like the "Spectre performance" intake kit, correct? You buy pieces as you need, etc. I'll save you trouble ahead of time...it's cheap, the joint pieces broke on me after a while...yes you can get the IAT in with the MAF tube piece, comes with the square you'll have to customize it. Far more work than it's worth quite honestly...eventually I had to get the arm to hold it in place, then realized sucking hot engine bay air in wasn't the best idea in the world...now I have an Intense FWI.

Tell me if this IS the kit you are talking about, if you still wanna go this route I can help you along to get the right parts if need be. My personal suggestion is to abandon this, though, if it IS the kit I am thinking of.

Lots of things could be causing this. Let's start with the actual kit. Do you have a pic of it? Or a link?

Wow! Do I feel dumb! I cut the 2 wires connected to the IAT. Jerry rigged it so its inside of the elbow. Reattached lines with a wire crimp... replaced old plastic hoseing. started it & same friggin prob! Then I look up... to my suprise one of the vac elbows at the top of engine is off... sure as sh*t no probs surging! Mmmm thw whine of a 3800 with a preformance intake.. Intoxicating! The new armor side pannels are the next project! ;)

More details on your intake may save you more grief. Don't be embarrassed, just let us know what it is.
