K&N cold air - help!

just put a k&n cold air on my 07 tundra, and now it runs like ! they are rating it to make 9 hp at the wheels, (not off the motor) and include a dyno sheet and everything, i have triple checked everything i did, its all right, mass air flow sensor is the right way, even called them and they don't know why either. any one else have any ideas???? when i run it i get white smoke out of the exhaust, not a lot but wasn't there before, and i can really feel a huge loss of power when driving, even is idling really really low. any input is very appreaciated!!!

and have read tons of reviews and toyota did a very good job on the stock exhaust so to much back pressure is not supposed to be an issue

maybe you got some oil on your MAF sensor try cleaning it. is it throwing a code? also, unhook the negative on your batt and let it sit for 15-20 mins then plug it back in, (resetting the computer)

I put a kit on my Ram and it ran like for the first 200 miles or so. Although I never saw any smoke. It was explained to me that the truck needed to "learn" about the parts and "reprogram" itself for my driving habits. I cleared the PCM so the truck would start from scratch. Basically unplugging the battery and try to start the truck for 30 secs. It seems to have worked and I haven't had any problems since.

how much oil did you apply on the filter? sounds like maybe you got too much oil on the filter and it's not breathing well enough

i'd def be worried too much oil in the filter...especially since if it's enough to smoke out the exhaust it's enough to trash the MAF. put back on the stock intake, or run the intake without a filter to see if it solves the problem. that'll tell you if it's something to do with the filter/intake, or another problem.

ditto above; make sure you don't have any open vacuum hoses that would require a plug

If it's a K&N, they come pre oiled. Don't oil a "in the seal" K&N filter.
Sorry I don't have a suggestion. Seems others have covered my thoughts. Good luck with it and keep us posted. I will be getting a cold air for my 07 Tundra 5.7 soon.
