1. Search function on the forum gives you access to TONS of info that others have posted...just so happens that your question is addressed multiple times a week.

2. Quick and dirty answer....Get a set of x14ieds. Plug-n-play install and 5 min later you're back in the saddle. That will solve the issue for ECM calibration and they're a cheaper option than a FuelPak or PCV.

I had the same intake with the X14iED's. It still ran a bit too lean, as I had a lot of decel popping. I'd still consider trying them, but you will more than likely have to add an additional tuner if you have an aftermarket exhaust too. I ended up taking my intake and FuelPak off because I didn't feel like screwing around with the tuning anymore. I lost a little power and it doesn't look as nice, but it runs like a champ now.
