You could have jostled something loose when you installed the intake. Check all the sensors and hoses in the vicinity and make sure they're all connected up tight.

What kind of intake is it?

I too agree with mxs, You need to take a good hard look at everything on or around the intake. Make sure all sensors are secure, as well as hoses. It would be great if you could get a few close up shots of the intake/engine area so that we could take a look at what you got as well. That might help us, to help you
