I would post up a WTB in classifieds for a stock intake, I bet a lot of people have old ones sitting in their garage from the same swap we did.

Nope, still no codes what-so-ever, and before I had frequent lean codes.. must have been the same problem.

Actually, I had gone into limp mode before the aftermarket intake.. twice in the first three months, I assumed it was a wheel speed sensor and it went away with a quick restart so I never went after it.. still not sure of the cause, and that's why I'm scared its only hiding my real issue.
