the y pipe COULD cause too much flow through maf but we all did that mod and no warning lights
the clutch fan, did you put the bolts back in?
also check ALL wires in this area are connected and tight, the MAF, etc.

A friend of mine with an 97 S14 had the check engine light come on after he installed an K & N air filter. The light would go on and off every once in a while. It didn't seem to affect drivablity and he never looked into it. This was over a year ago and he still doesn't have any problems with the car, other than the light coming on occasionally.

Just a suggestion. take the car to an autozone and have them read the code for you.. it's free.. I'd be interested to see what code it's throwing.
I had a engine light come on once when i had a battery issue problem.. car was completely loosing power on the way home to the point I had to turn off the headlights to get enough power to drive in 2nd gear! I replaced the batt. that night. Then i hooked the gauges back up and got a check engine light. [I had the guages out because I was putting in my indiglo's and was too friggin tired to put them back in that night]
**mental picture: "Son, do you know how fast you were going? Not really, [pointing to missing cluster] I was hoping you might be able to tell me"**
Autozone read it as a speed sensor and a knock sensor.. I highly doubt that was a problem, so I had him clear it. I figured if it was a real problem, the light would come back on. Never did. My baby runs fine now. TX heat has a tendancy to kill a lot of car batteries. Ironicly I had to replace the starter 2 weeks later. http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif thank god for manual tranny's or i'd still be 50mi from any parts store. Push start! Whoo!

It isn't ironic that you had to replace your starter two weeks after your battery died, your starter killed your battery as it was dying.

As far as the check engine light definately check the code. Also make sure the MAF plug is in place and there are no air leaks between the MAF sensor and the throttle body.
