40th Anniv Idle issue following auto body throttle/cold air intake installation

Discussion in 'Special Production' started by csxman, May 24, 2011.

  1. I recently installed a BBK 70mm auto body throttle w/spacer and an American Muscle cold air intake. When I start the car WITHOUT the MAF plugin everything runs fine - idle is good and car performance is great. As soon as I connect the MAF, it turns and dies...Took it to a shop that performed a diagnostic - registered 40 psi fuel pressure after installing a NEW MAF...although the same thing happened with it...ran fine NOT connected...died when it was connected.

    Questions include:

    Any solutions out there for this issue?

    Is it safe to just leave the MAF disconnected?
  2. Did u get a new Max for it to run new perameters your running it other than stock the stock maf will throw off the vehicle it uses it to put the proper a mound of fuel into the engine so its not lean or rich
