Default Intake malfunction

i installed weapon-r secret weapon intake on my 08 obs.

the entire system installed as it should, but when i went to start the car it started right up, but the rpms came back down the engine just shut off.

I attempted to keep the rpms up by lightly pressing the gas but the rpms continued to decline and finally the engine shuts down again.

i reinstalled the stock intake for the time being.

does anyone know of what the possible problem could be or of any solutions to this problem?

this happened to me one time when i first changed my intake and it was because i put the MAF sensor in backwards. flipped it around and it ran fine.

thanks that worked.

does anyone know of a good way to mount the intake. its sitting on a metal bar that connects to a screw over the headlight now.

also can i get an adaptor for my maf sensor because the one on the intake is backward from the screw holes on the maf senor.

I too was going to was going to say that either not plugged in or in backwards..theres a plastic cup about a lil smaller than a dime that cups the air if thats backwards you have no flow over your MAF...glad your back on track.
