After installing k&n cold air intake on my 2014 Sierra ,it bogs when you hit the gas. Does anyone know the problem?

The problem is you installed an expensive piece of junk in your car instead of just renewing your stock air filter element every year or 18 months to keep it clean and free flowing.

Take it up with K and N who told you what a great product it was for your vehicle and who will now tell you that your installation is faulty which in any case, it may well be.

But in any case just changing the intake air flow characteristics from stock can be enough to make your engine running poorly and no amount of fiddling with the replacement intake will remedy this kind of problem when it occurs.

Did you fall for the tiny HP gain shown in their videos. Well putting a vehicle on a Dyno with an old and dirty stock air filter is going to produce poor performance compared to a second Dyno test where a new air filter is installed regardless of whether it is a good factory stock item or a K and N product. By the way independent tests have shown clearly that the K and N air filters allow much more dirt to enter your intake than the efficient stock OEM air filters do. Yes, the filter is there to keep out the dirt particles.

Put the stock system back on with a new air filter element and your engine will run properly again.

Installed an aftermarket air filter kit and now have a code of PO113

Have you tested your IAT (Intake Air Tempature sensor) ? Did you install in your new cold air intake? The P0113 code sets when it senses an air temp of -31 degrees F for more than 5 second . If you test your IAT with an ohm meter it should have continuity at room temp. the warmer it is the less resistance it should have. the colder it is the more resistance it should have. If you have no continuity the IAT is bad and needs replacing.

CEL came on for the car, says it is idleing too high/low. After I just put on a cold air intake. Cleared code and the CEL came back on the next day. Anyway I can turn the idle down manually?

There is no way for you to turn the idle down manually, it is all computer controlled. Do not adjust any screws on the throttle body, they are set from the factory. The only way you may be able to fix your idle problem with out getting rid of your cold air intake and replacing it with the factory is by removing both the positive and negative leads on the battery and holding them together for about 5 min while disconnected. This will reset the cars computer and may compensate for the intake. If this does not help you will need to remove the after market intake and put back in the stock one.
