Tune required?

Hey all,

Currently running a 2.8" Pulley on 50lb injectors with a ZZP flashed ECU.
Intake mod is an intake bucket delete and a K&N filter strapped to the end of the MAF Lid.
Runs great.

I just ordered a K&N Typhoon CAI.

Will I need a new ECU flash from zzp for this to run properly?

To run it "properly", yes. You can run it without a tune, but most people have their CEL come on.

Thanks Vyper. Real quick, the only thing I'm really worried about, is Under WOT will I lean out and detonate the engine?

No you will not lean out. Or go boom.

No tune needed the cai doesnt do much besides make the sc wine louder. Just clean the oil off the filter or buy a dry filter before you install it and you might not get a code. I would think you would be suckin all kinds of water with a box deleat, so ya just have the filter hangin next to the motor in the open?

I got the code myself when I installed the kn cai. I tuned it out. You are going from a 2.5 in intake to a 3 in so the maf sensor sees less air. You mustadjust your maf settings to compensate.

I have the typhoon on mine. When I first put it on I got the code. I got tired of seeing it so I tossed it on my shelf. It sat there a year and I guess the oil drained off and dried up cause ive had it on for a year now with no code.

No, the stock intake plumbing has no such 2.5 restriction unless it is the snorkle, I'll save Qwik the trip in here.
The K and N is badass because of the sound, thats it. It actually holds heat more than the stock plastic, however I have one and have had no issues after 3 yrs.

How do you clean the oil off the filter? Just put it in hot water?

I got a different code I got a lean code, not a maf error.

If you clean of the oil on the k&n, you are making it utterly useless. The oil in that filter is what makes it work. Change filters if you elect not to use k&n. I have used the K&n with the filter for some time without any issue. There is more plumbing between the filter and the maf with the K&n filter as opposed to stock air box.

Honestly, I have never measured the stock intake. I remember hearing it was 2.5 in, though. I am not sure what caused the difference.

Either way, I was tuned before it and drove for some time with any codes. After install, my STFT and LTFT were off significantly enough to throw a lean code. I had to retune the MAF setting to accommodate the k&n. That is the basis of my statement.
