You answered your own question. Your aftermarket intake caused a failure. This is not covered by warranty.

Put the stock intake back on and get a local indy shop to read your code. If it is air management related (it will be) then get it cleared and you're good to go.

SES light was not necessarily triggered by the intake unless it showed up right after he installed it - original post was unclear.

check your intake, try to reseed your MAF sensor.

If all you touched is the intake your fine. Dont waist money taking to a shop to switch out an intake. change it back to stock by yourself and the light should go away

yea it's obviously the intake...
as long as you take it back stock i doubt you'll void the warranty. good luck though.
