Default car no start after CAI install? help please

My car will not start after I installed the injen CAI? It turns over but does not start? THe check engine light is on. The only thing I unpluged was the air temp sensor from the stock box then re-attached it to the injen intake?
HELP!

that's weird. I bet the CEL is not real, it's just showing your ignition, but I cant imagine the hang up?! I mean it should start with just a naked intake.

Yeah, I'd Reset and hope it goes away.

By the way. Brullen quiet is prolly loud enough. It's just enough to set off the odd car alarm, but not obnoxous for long trips. You'll be happy with the deeeeeeep rumble.

I took off the whole intake off of the manifold to see if any air was getting in. still nothing. I disconnected and reconnected the Air sensor and even removed it a few times...I do not know if the battery was disconnected or not when making those changes. I have to go back tonight and try some more things. I am thinking that I will disconnect the battery, disconnect the sensor for about 10 min. Then reconnect the sensor, then reconnect the battery. Try to turn over the car without stepping on the gas peddle and hope. If that fails I will leave it all connected and pull the ECU fuse out, wait 5 min, then re-connect the fuse for the ECU. See any problems in this?

Well nothing. It is now almost 12am and I need to pass out. I went back and re checked the hoses, there are only 3 and they go to the correct ports on the intake. I let the car sit with out the neg wire to the battery for over 30 min with the air sensor connected to the intake. What I found to be odd was that the break light, CEL, oil, and Battery where all on when the key was turned almost to start. When you turn over the car, or try to it just turns over and over again, the CEL does go off, so does the oil. But the Battery light stays on.
I am also leaving the Neg connection off the battery tonight.

Replace the fuel filter and fill up your tank with gas. It sounds like your out.

Seriously though it sounds like something is messed up with the fuel system. Maybe power to your fuel pump is disconnected or has a blown fuse or something.

I just went out to look at my EJ25 to see if any ideas arrise, I agree with thinking about primary spark failure. I wonder if the supply to the coil has been disrupted... it's wiring traverses out from under the same area that you're working. Four wires supply the coil via a plug on the passenger side of the coil unit, it coulda been tugged, or somethingk. Don't you hate arm-chair mechanics.

And Keyboard Mechanics.

Were the same ones that add horsepower like this:

Intake = 10hp
Full Exhaust = 18hp
Cam = 20hp

My car has 213hp

Ok, this is one for the books and for everyone who might EVER have the ****ing problem. I went back tonight with a friend to help look at the problem, like spark connections, blah, blah, blah.
i had spark, I have fuel, I have all the hoses on like I have been saying. Take a look below.




This little bastard was the problem. It is some sort of relay. Instead of the fuse that goes into the block, one end goes into the block, and on the other end goes the fuse?!?!?!

What the hell is this? Part number




Any way right when I removed the relay out of play and place a new fuse in its place it started! On some off chance it went bad most likley while I was changing out the intake, maybe I sparked something...doubt it. Anyway, if anyone knows what this is or go look to see if they have one that would be great!!!

Some after photos.
