Having an intake on would not cause the jerky shifts and the 2-1 clunky downshift. They might have an argument with the surging since the engine itself is going up and down in rpms...maybe. Put everything back to stock and take it back to them and have them replicate the issues. If you had what I had I can almost guarantee that you will still experience the same issues. Good luck
I'm going to wait and have them replace the maf sensor next tuesday. I can personally do it, but would rather avoid the hassle of them saying it was installed wrong. They don't attribute the problems to the intake but to the malfunctioning maf. I asked to see how an air flow sensor has anything to do with jerky shifting and they didn't have any response. Three mechanics stuttered through a bs response. They said I would have to get the maf replaced before they could come up with an answer.
My personal opinion on the whole matter is: They know it's an issue with the mech unit, but do not want to replace it under warranty yet since they can still get some money out of me through the maf replacement. But maybe I'm being cynical.
