what is wrong??????

I have a 03 AV6 coupe automatic and i just recently installed my aem v2 just yesterday which sounds great, but this morning i was on the freeway on my way to school and wanting to hear the intake i floored it but by the time i got to 2nd gear, it wasnt shifting and so the meter was stuck between 6,000 and 7,000 rpm going crazy. So i had to release the gas pedal. i tried it one more time and again it was stuck at 2nd gear. At this point i was scared cuz this never happend before. AFter school while going home i tried again but this time it was fine. i'm thinking that the intake caused this??? does anyone know? i've had this car for 6 weeks (bought it used from a honda dealer 29k miles) so i hope it is nothing big.

That happened to me a couple timesright after I installed my AEM V2. I have no idea what caused it and it IS scarey as hell. But it has never happened again.

I Know what it might be..........THIS happened to me but i have 6th gen....but i believe this is ur problem...check the hose that were used to connect intake and clamps and make sure the are not in the way of throttle cable b/c the cable is getting stuck sometime at open throttle on that....trust me it can happen ...so i moved clamps to were they couldnt be caught by throotle linkage ar cable...see and tell me if that helps

Only the V-6's..... the I-4's still use a throttle cable.

I've had the v2 on for over a year.... never had any problems from it. I also have an auto and have never experienced that. Once you install it you need to recalibrate the ECU or have your dealer do it if they will. Just disconnect the battery for 10-15 minutes then reconnect. Otherwise you may have a problem with your tranny or ECU causing the intermittent shift problem.

Is it a good idea to recalibrate the ECU with all new intakes? Does the factory six disc deck in the 7th generation Accords need a code to get the radio to work after the battery is disconected? Thanks

i've got injen and didnt disconnect the battery or do anything else to it. just installed it and its just perfect. plus the sound is very nice when you floor it, and when driving normally there is no humming sound at all. and it gives you the hp and torque where you need it, at lower rpm's unlike aem.

anyways both are good. but injen proved to be better since a sedan with only injen got 14.5 on a strip and no aem v2 installed av6 auto had achieved that time.

Well you should recal it whether you think it's running perfect or not. I thought the same thing until the guy at the dealer that I trust told me it was running lean because of the additional air available and the ECU being calibrated wrong. Just remember your ear/nose air/fuel meter is not as accurrate as the OBDCII... no offense.

And people are going to argue day and night about which is better. The ONLY way to really tell is to use a specific car, a specific dyno, and a specific day. Run with stock resonator box, run with v2, and run with injen. Since noone has done this experiment in a controled and unbiased environment, everything else is nothing but opinions and my "@ss dyno" tells me its faster... Opinions are fine, but people should be more forthcoming about *where* there "information" is coming from. Sorry for the $0.02.

I just poped off the negative of my battery, waited 10 minutes, put it back on and I guess it feels a little different.

I agree on the unbiased dyno note, but I also agree that my Secret Weapon Intake is better than all the rest!

You probably won't be able to feel much... but your engine should run just alittle cooler... running lean means running hot.
