The car runs fine but it could be out-of-tune and I don't know it.
I'm going to try and locate the previous owner but if that doesn't work I'll need some advice on my next move. Buy a tuner, get an e-mail tune or do nothing.
Your comments are appreciated.
I agree with stemar. If you look at the CAI, there should be a brand name on it (JLT, Steeda, Airraid etc). Then you can look up that brand and see if it needs to be tuned. If your car is running fine now, it probably doesn't need a tune or it already has one. However, if you plan on modding your car at all in the future, you are going to need a handheld programmer anyhow. IMO you might as well buy a programmer and an email tune. The guys at AM can hook you up.
