I'm getting a ticking noise at acceleration after I installed the CAI intake. Does anyone know what this is? It comes at hard accel. and goes away after.

You can hear over the roar of the CAI? The ticking must be really loud.

Make sure that the IAT sensor is properly rotated in its grommet to assure that it is properly sensing the air flow, and thusly not sending poor info to the ECM. The red locking latch on the electrical connector goes toward the front of the car thusly:

i think I have the same thing..

it's not so much a ticking you can hear, right? its more of ticking you can "feel" in the steering wheel at times.

It may be running lean because the IAT was damaged during transfer from the stock intake to the CAI.
