i need some help with my boss manifold

i bought the new boss intake manifold from american muscle. the install was very easy. anyway, after i installed the manifold and tune i went for a test drive. when driving and in gear the car does just fine, but when i press the clutch and put the car in neutral it dies?!?!? this happens about 40% of the time. american muscle couldnt really help me. wondering if someone else has had this same problem or knows what to do.

three things

1) did you do the idle relearn after you installed the tune

2) did you torque all the bolts on the manifold in pattern they are supposed to be torqued.

3) are all the vaccum lines on and snug?

Is your MAF connector plugged in properly? What did you do with the purge valve?

the instructions said that the purge valve was no longer needed so i just moved it out of the way....And with the mass air i just pulled it out of the stock air tube, and placed it in the aftermarket one

I would start with the simple stuff first like stated above. Check every connection to make sure everything is snug. If still no luck it may be in the tune.

I didn't remove my purge valve. I relocated it to the block. And honestly, I didn't torque the manifold bolts down either. So unless you've got some bolts that are seriously loose, I don't see that as being the problem.

Same here. Relocated the purge valve and didnt torque the mani to their specs. Torque specs on that thing are so that you don't crack the plastic on the install.

blakebrooks,

It sounds like you still need to preform the "Idle relearn" process. Without doing the idle relearn, you'll experience very similar symptoms (surging idle, dying idle, etc) to this when installing a major air flow upgrade. Follow the link provided above and do every step exactly as explained. Once you're finished, get back to me and let me know how the car's running. If you're still having problems and all the connections are properly secured, I'll have our Lead Bama Tuner take a look at your tune to see if there's any adjustments that can be made.

I'll look forward to your response!

Shane

FYI, this is straight out of the manual. When you start it after this it will sound like you're bringing a dead beast back to life, just let it do it's thing because when I did it it sounded like crap for the first thirty seconds.

This. Pull your negative battery cable for a few then try that procedure. It's ironed out quite a few idle/stalling issues before.

OP,

Have you had any luck with the Idle Relearn process? I hope everything got straightened out after! Let me know if you're still having the issues and I'll get you in contact with our lead Bama tuner (Mike Wilson). If there's any adjustments that can be made to the tune, he'll be able to find it!
