Default Help !! K&N pod filter intake

Hi there guys.. I need some advice... During the weekend I tried to install a k&n pod filter on my 1.3 Suzuki jimny. It was a complete fail. I ran a pipe to the maf and which then linked to the cone filter. Everything was sealed off and the maf sensor was air tight and was secure vertical the way it should be. I was quite confused because I had quite an unexpected result. at first my car would just die after ignition and if I gave it petrol it would feel very flat. I then changed the idle body and my car began to surge when idling and the accelerating was still flat and delayed. Can someone please give me some advice on the matter

thanks

Works fine with the stock filter box set up?

Your description of the issue sounds like you still had either a vacuum leak, or a source of air getting in behind the MAF, which made the ECU think the engine was getting less air than it really was, in turn causing a lean issue.

Alternatively, are you sure all sensors were installed AND plugged back in after the K&N install? I'm not familiar with the set up of your Jimny, as they were never offered in the US, but using my Vitara 2.0 for example, as I fitted it in my Samurai without the factory filter box, there was no place for the intake air temp sensor to go, and I had to re-route the fresh air intake for the PCV system. Though granted, neither of these would cause the issues you describe.

If by "idle body", you're referring to what we would call the "throttle body", the part where the throttle cable would attach, perhaps you either forgot to plug in the Throttle Position Sensor, or it's faulty on one or the other body?

This is way beyond your pay grade, restore to factory and you will be mobile again..

K&N filters are just an ego booster, do nothing positive for engine..

Put the stock air box back in and just use a K&N made for it. It will probably make MORE power than the pod. The stock box uses cold air, not the 200 degree engine bay air that the pod will be sucking.
