Unhappy Anyone with CAI, Unichip and stock turbo?

I just talked to Shiv and he doesn't recommend putting CAI with stock turbo because it leans out the engine.
When I did a search, it seemed like a lot of people were indeed using CAI with stock turbo. Well, the problem here is that I have an AEM CAI on order.
Can someone with CAI, Unichip and stock turbo report what it's like running them? Any problems?

There is nothing wrong with having one, shiv or any tuner can compensate for it. Is that not the sole purpose of getting a unit like the unichip?

I have been running an AEM CAI on my car for the last month and it feels great. It does lose a little bottom end but it makes up for it on the top end. I love the sound also!!

12000 miles with Cobb Club Spec (which included CAI, Unichip, and Stock Turbo - along with other things) - no problems at all...
