CAI Install

How hard is it to install a CAI? I am thinking of buying one off ebay.

Re: CAI Install

Nothing to it. unbolt the old one, take out your maf, and hook it right up. Takes about 30 minutes if you have no idea what you're doing.

Re: CAI Install

the ones on ebay are not super high quality almost always, so if you go there you are taking your chances, they will still work fine, just concerning the finish of them and quality.

Wurd, the only problem you'll have is getting everything twisted so that it fits just so. It's easy.

Re: CAI Install

the air filter is a pita to get on the inner fender CAI's (make SURE the filter sits right inside the inner fender, not facign downward where whater can get in it)

The trick to getting it on is have someone put a bit of the pipe in the inner fender hole, you line up the filter from the underside then guide it in the pipe as they push it in.
