alright. i was worried that since resetting the ecu with my intake, that since the revs weren't going very high and the car wasnt pulling very hard that sumtin might be messed with the sensors. ill just try to drive it hard some more and see if it changes
If it was hunky-dorey before air inlet modification,
I would suspect your CAI more than the ECU.
Might be too lean -> detonation -> failsafe mode.
Put back original air intake, reset ECU and see if its good.
I think V6s are a little more sensitive.
