You need the MAF sensor plugged in... plain and simple. If you want a cold air intake you need to design it around the MAF or just buy a complete unit from K&N or any other reputable company.

CAI = waste of money until you do some serious mods. Might as well just leave all the stock tubing and delete the box with the filter and replace it with a cone filter.
