I have an automatic v6 with a bama tune. I decided to buy a JLT CAI, I installed it myself and had bama reprogram my tunes to adjust. Ever since I installed it the performance is amazing, but whenever I step on the brake and decelerate down to about 5 mph i feel a jolt in the car. It almost feels like somebody just rear ended me, which is what i keep thinking everytime it happens. It happens about 50% of the time while i'm driving. Anyone else have this problem or know whats wrong?

Call BAMA and ask them if they can change the tranny parameters. Sounds to me like it may have something to do with the converter lockup.

Yeah, I don't think this has anything to do with the cai. I have the same characteristic sometimes, and I have nothing more than the tune and a K&N filter.

Same as what some of the others are saying, I occasionally get some really firm downshifts on deceleration, they sometimes really clunk hard. Nothing to do with the cai, just a shift parameter issue, they can adjust that if it annoys you.

I didn't know that Bama tweaks their tunes for CAI.

from the AM website

I was looking at this video while thinking about purchasing a intake. The video seems to show him installing the MAF sensor behind the heatshield. Looking at pics of other intakes JLT for example, i noticed the MAF wire on the other side of the heatshield.

I dont honestly know much about these things but, wouldnt the location of the MAF (especially when using a heatshield) make a difference? Even more so if you get a custom tune?

If so on which side would be better for the MAF?

Cool thanks for the feedback, its no biggie just wondered if it was a problem or not. And yea I didnt think they would have to retune but they sent me new ones.

I was told they didn't

I called bama 2x and was told that the tunes I had for the stock intake were the same as the ones they did for a cai ( I have the airraid)

Basically I was told the same thing when I called about a couple DTCs I pulled. I wish they did though.
