Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Do you have all the vacuum lines hooked up? Did you check for intake air leak? That is what it sounds like.

Let me know.

Well the new manifold eliminiated some of the vacuum lines, there was no where to hook them up. i will double check the intake to make sure its all air tight.
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago

What do you mean it eliminated some. Do you have a web link on the intake you installed?

Can you share some pictures of the install? Also show the back side of the intake fire wall side.

Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago

From what I am reading about this intake, it doesn't eliminate any vacuum lines. So you may want to look at your old intake and follow the vacuum lines. Also you did use a gasket for the intake right?

Theres no where for that to go now. I dont have the car infront of me right now but im gonna go walk out to it right now to take a few pictures for you.
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago

That has to go back on some how. Other wise you are going to get a P1800 code.
