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.
