Best software for mods

Who should I get software from if I want to get maximum gains out of swapping in an m50 intake manifold and a CAI?

I am guessing just getting a shark injector is not the way to go.

^^ Since all I found there for OBDII was the Shark Injector, so I started this thread. I was starting to doubt my memory. It is good to have confirmation. Do you know if it is too expensive? Thanks all.

no, its the price of the shark, when u call them to order,list the mods u have done, they shall calculate it in, if u have ur dyno chart with the Air 2 fuel ratio, it would be even better...

t broc is on a distinguished road
I just got a cold air from AFE, and got a service light come one. Computer says the car is running to lean. Anyone know if software like a shark injector will make that go away? Dealer says they'll fix it, but i'm guessing this will fix the fuel/air ratio, but will not give me horse power gains as well.
any advice?
