Did you reconnect the MAF sensor to the cold feed pipe? Or was the MAF damaged in any way when installing the new air intake? Take it off and check it for dirt or damage to the resistors inside.

Got pics of what you've done? If you've put a pod filter on then you're asking for trouble. Quick search on here will tell you they're more problem than they're worth.

hey guys, it is a automatic.... i clean the maf sensor etc,..... i found out in the stock air intake box where the sensor is install on the inside there are 2 fins, i guess they are there to reduce air turbulance to the maf sensor so i got to pieces of sheet metal and make a 2 temporary fins, place them them close enough to where the sensor is installed.. then take the car for a test, it work a bit better . one day wen i was going to race , wen i launch the car it started struggling then wen it got over 2000rpm it started working better

the fins are not weld in as yet.. it was a direct flow pipe.. i went the cheap way because the hks types are very expensive... i bought the intake thats for the 6cylinder altezza/is300 and cut the pipe to make it work on my 3sge engine
