Hey guys i have a S&B intake, 5" straight pipe exhaust with the 250 Spartan tune on right now. Just started the other day when i nail on the throttle the check air filter light come on?? I checked and the little sensor button looks like it is sucked in so i push the button and it releases and all is good. Till I go for a drive and nail it again. Would the spring in the sensor under the hood be shot??

Silly question, but did you actually check the filter. It may be time for a cleaning or maybe you somehow sucked something up into it?

Dont wanna derail your thread man but just wondering where you got your prefilter from?? I just ordered an S&B and was thinking prefilter would be a good idea for the gravel roads.

I got mine from North American Diesel Performance. They are in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada there number is 780 456-4498. They are awesome to deal with. I love the prefilter i just got it end of summer last year. My first filter was shot i do lots of gravel road driving the prefilter seems to be working good so far.

You need to pull that plastic S&B cover off. Good thing is you can hear the turbos better. Didn't change IAT at all.

Well basically i am sucking that spring down it is sucking so hard. Once that spring is sucked down that means it is time to change the filter if it was stock that is suppose to be the idea and that is why the light comes on. If i reset it the light will go off but it keeps sucking in that spring.
