Nothing can remove the flat spot from the intake, really youve bought just about the worst one out there! Most people have seen a loss in BHP from fitting one of these!

Unfortunately the minimum for an intake you should go for is the HKS Racing Suction Kit, which is around £350.

Regarding the original post, possibly fitted incorrectly?? This intake shouldnt produce an engine check light...

I assume he means the cold air version not the AEM SRI.

If its a cold air version it should be good, but it will require mapping.

Check light will probably be on if straight away as you hadn't plugged the MAF sensor back in when you turned the ignition so it's stored in memory. This needs to be reset.

Car will drive ok and doesnt NEED remap but it will help as you will feel a flat spot if you floor it when pulling away hard.

This flatspot is caused by disturbance over the sensor and it overfuels for a split second. This can also throw up a fuelling check code so just be aware. Not a problem just side effect. ;)

I had exactly the same problem on mine mate, posted on here and everyone said don't get one without a flash pro. I got told the MAF sensor needs re-calibrating for it to run smoothly. I took mine off and sold it !
