Don't have one myself but after reading about the problem for a couple of years here I would suggest:

1. Go back over your installation step by step
2. Pay particular attention to all vacuum lines, make sure they are connected or plugged per the installation instructions
3. Make sure your MAF is sealed correctly to the intake tube

Having a CEL is not normal and could cause performance or reliability problems.

If you have a CEL there is a problem and should be corrected. There are people with AEMs who do not have the problem.

you know, i installed my AEM a while back and it ran perfectly for a long while, then i got that CEL light too. I got it check and everything was fine. It only stood for about a day then it turned off. But you should get it checked

Everyone is assuming that he got an AEM. If it's a different no-name brand it could be the wrong diameter and throw everything off.
What kind of intake is it?
