you will see a minor difference its mainly for looks tho, and the ebay cais are basically just as good as macs accept in mac you are paying for the name, we have a thread on this that explains it well i will try and find it.

This needs to be in General Mustang Tech, but I don't have the power to fix that anymore.

I just won an auction for a k & n filter and liveonspeed chrome tubing. I expect to receive it on Thursday and will use your how to install guide to help myself out. This will be my first engine mod...really excited. Thanks.

As soon as Brent uploads the new CAI Article, it will cover what problems come inherent of a eBay CAI.

And since K8 lives in California, K8 should know that the ebay CAI's arent california smog complient. They do not have the carb number needed. so K8 will probably have to either buy a MAC CAI, or take out the ebay one and throw the stock indtuction back in when it comes time to smog the car.

WTF?!? Ebay CAIs are California smog complient? I'm also in CA, but am registered in TX. What does that mean besides that it won't pass the smog? Will my car smell bad? Is it noticeable w/o checking it w/ a machine?

If you don't want ot have to swap the factory equpment out for the ebay CAI for your inspection buy a MAC, BBK, K&N etc., the name brand ones come with a C.A.R.B. decal that states that it is emission legal. Ill take a pic of my K&N one tomorrow to give you an idea....now i just gota find my digi cam

OK OK OK!!!! LET ME EXPLAIN THIS!!!!!

The Ebay CAI does NOT come with a California CARB Number. This CARB number is usually engraved onto the more expensive MAC and BBK models. The CARB number shows the inspector that the modification has been through testing.

the ebay CAI DOES PASS Emmissions tests~!!!! But it does not meet the VISUAL inspection!!! Without hte CARB number, it will most likely fail unless your inspector is cool, or you tell him that the CAI has a carb number on a sticker that you got with the system. (SSearch the net for hte correct carb number, or search forums)
