CAI LAG

Hello to all.
New here, and I have a question. I recently fitted an Airaid CAI to my 2013. I love the growl when you put your foot down, but I experience a heavy lag before it kicks in. Is this typical? Can I take measures to rectify the problem?
Any advice is appreciated....Thanks.

I'd get a tune otherwise the true potential of the CAI won't be realized. Check out Americanmuscle.com. It'll wake that bad boy up.

Yeah! I am thinking about it. Already put 25k on it, so the warranty will be up in a few more months. Thanks.

When in Track apps mode, it still does it with Trac control dis-engaged. Quite frustrating. Sometimes, its like its about to stall!

Out of curiosity I think I'd switch back to the stock air box and give it a drive to see if the problem continued. Maybe it's unrelated to the CAI and maybe something like the throttle body?

I am curious now as well. Looking at an Airaid CAI from AmericanMuscle and have been looking around for any unforeseen pitfalls.

Don't get me wrong, the Airaid filter is great, and I re-charge it as needed. I had considered putting the stock one back to test, now I think I will.
Incidentally, because of this problem, the best 0-60 I have been able to achieve is 6.7 secs.

Mine did just the opposite

My Airaid took away all of the lag. I now have instant throttle response.

Disconnect your battery and reconnect it 30 min later. Let your computer go thru the relearn process and it should fix the problem. Or you could just have a leak on one of the clamps and it's confusing the MAF sensor. Check your clamps on both ends of the CAI and if that doesn't work do the relearn.

The rubber grommet for the crank case valve is cheap. I sheared off 3 of them and my 4th is half broken on the inside. I had to glue it on and hoping it stays.

You do know the powertrain warranty is 5years and 60,000 miles. Bumper to bumper is 36,000

Ok, so big thanks to Black on Black. The 30 min re-boot made a significant difference. There is still a slight lag which a tune will probably resolve. Better start saving my pennies for a tuner!

I'm glad to hear you got majority of the Lag figured out. Taking the Battery off for a few minutes is definitely a great trick. This will completely reset your PCM and the car will relearn it's idle and drive ability with the CAI on there!

A Tune will definitely correct the rest of the lag, along with a ton of other things! You'll notice huge gains in Power, torque, drive ability, gas mileage, throttle response and so much more... Here's a little bit about how we write our tunes!

For every Bama Tune we ask you 19 questions about your specific Mustang, including your unique mods and style of driving. This info helps us write custom tunes from the ground-up for your Mustang's mods that will give you the most horsepower that we can safely deliver. We're also constantly developing our tunes! Between our 14 different Project Mustangs and tons of street/track and dyno testing (on our in-house Dynojet 224xLC), we're looking for any minor tweaks to be made that can benefit you guys. We're also part of Fords Technology Transfer Program & Work very closely with Ford to insure that all of our tunes are perfect!

I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future. Our Bama Performance tuning specialists are here in the building Monday-Friday from 9AM-5:30PM EST and Saturday 9AM-5:30PM EST. You can hit them up directly at 888.226.9764 and they'll get you squared away!

No, the point is for the car to relearn the modifications.
