Howell "44" flash

My check engine light came on today and it was a code 44 (lean O2 sensor). Could this be because I just installed a cold air intake. I always thought the filter I had was restricting air flow. Will the computer "learn" and fix this?

Probably nothing to do with the cold air intake. Check your wiring and see if you have a lose connection otherwise its probably time to replace the O-2 sensor.

The cold air intake is negated by the heated manifold so you wont see any real performance gains.

Why dont you have a heated manifold?
I know it sounds counter productive to a cold air charge however it ready does help keep the fuel in suspension in the manifold.

I replaced the O2 sensor and that seemed to solve my problem. Are Offenhauser intakes heated?

If you have the heater hoses hooked up to the manifold yes you have a heated manifold.
The Offy and Cliford manifolds do not have provisions for the electric heater.
