S3 / air intake

I just installed a short ram intake in my 90 teg (w/ :auto: ) the other day. I’ve had the car for 9 years and for the very first time yesterday I had to turn the car over 4-5 times before it would run. Usually it starts first try. After this I noticed the S3 button on the dash flashing and while driving, there was next to no acceleration when starting from a stop. I was able to find a place to pull over and when I restarted the car everything was back to normal. I’m just wondering if there is any connection between these symptons and the installation of the intake.
