Yep that could be the problem. Since most of them make you think they are adding power by creating a bunch of extra air noise. If yours is like most of the cold air kits they actually pull in hot air from under the hood. Never could figure out how they can call that a cold air intake. The stock unit draws air from behind the grill in a high pressure area, sends it through a system that flows almost 5 times the air that the engine can ever use and quiets it down nicely as well.
Oh and be advised that if that system is using an oiled gauze style filter, those like to leave oil deposits on the MAF and set off the check engine light because of the contamination of the sensor.
