Try starting it with the stock intake and see if it still dies. But don't drive it on the tune with the CAI. This will eliminate any problems/install issues with it.

You're the second person with a 14 GT that's doing this. All from BAMA? I've never had any troubles with my BAMA tunes.

You said you put your stock box back on and its fine. But you didn't say if you returned to stock tune or not. If you put your stock intake back but kept the street tune then its not likely the tune. There's a vacuum leak somewhere most likely.

But if you returned to stock with the stock intake then you need to reinstall the AirAid but put the Venturi tube in or whatever its called but keep the stock tune cuz with the tube you don't need a tune.

You do this to rule out the AirAid as the culprit. Once you can start the car without it dying you will have made sure two things.

1.) AirAid intake is not defective somehow
2.) You dont have a vacuum leak

So then finally take out the tube and reinstall the tune. If it persists then for shizzle you know its the tune and not human or equipment error.

Now you can at your option tell AM you want them to address the issue ASAP whether to retune your car or give you a refund.

Hey Michael,

Sorry to hear about the trouble here! Looks like Dallas beat me to the punch here but if the issues are still persisting please shoot us a call and we'll see if we can trouble shoot the install with you!

something is not connected, you need to review your install.

Ok. Just ate some blueberries but still have a hangover. And still hungry as hell. Second day of my vacation paradise in Destin, FL.

Ok just answer this after u do it. Install the AirAid CAI with the Venturi tube and return the car to stock tune. What is happening now after that?
