    new intercooler

    just wondering if anyone can help. i have put the ths on but keep getting the engine management light up. plugged in the vcds and fault code says system running to lean.
    the car is standard apart from the intercooler, so was just wondering if someone on here knows if its to do with the current standard software unable to adapt to the new intercooler or maybe something else.

    so please anyone help

    odd
    all the intercooler does is lower the intake temps, effectively like driving in winter the whole time, so cant see how that would make the car run lean as the air/fuel mix is governed by the software and MAF
    have you tried unplugging the MAF clearing the codes, taking it for a drive and rescanning?
