:confused:i just recently changed my muffler and intake and now my car idles to the point that the oil light flickers on. :twitch:sometimes it idles under 500 and seems to want to die but doesnt. what im tryin to ask is the idle different because of the changes in back pressure or is there somthing else i must attend to? help would be wonderful.

OK a few things....one check and make sure all connections are tight on the intake. 2 disconnect the battery for 10minutes, reconnect and start the car and let it sit there and idle for 20min...do not touch the gas...it will start out acting funny but will smooth its self out and reset the idle in the ecu.

Hope this helps

Yeah, if you're not careful, something may have come off your intake. I noticed that the exact same thing happened to me a while back. Ended up being that the intake was messed up a bit. Got out, fixed it, and it's been fine.
