    it might skew them a bit, but shouldnt be enough to throw a code. and if it does, it will lean it out a bit, so up top its actually good gm tunes are pig rich(not that it will make enough of a difference to gain power alone) but down low cruising round town might get you slightly higher mpg...best results are always with a tune

    MAF Mass Air Flow Sensor(mounted in the intake tube near the filter) reads the amount of air moving through the intake.
