Definately the twin intake

Without the MAF screen, turbulence at the mouth of the MAF, or an incorrect idle learn will cause the P0171 and or P0174 codes to pop. You must run the screened MAF with the twin to avoid these codes.

This is why we have only one large filter on the T-1. The two filters provide enough airflow, but the airflow causes extreme turbulence right at the wire pickup. This distubance or tornado type of airflow is the opposite of what you are trying to accomplish. Turbulent airflow is only good when the air/fuel mixture is entering the combustion chamber. There is a patent on that design.

To get the codes ..

Turn on ignition, but don't start the car.

Hold down the Options button, and while holding it, press Fuel 4 times within ten seconds.

The codes will begin appearing on your DIC. It will cycle thru all the modules, and show all the codes for each.
