CIA

Is there an easer way to get that dad blame filter on the end of a CIA when it is in the fender?

Throw away your cell phone and get a foil hat. That'll keep the CIA away.

Maybe next time I'll try jacking the car up higher. Took longer to get the filter on than to install the whole thing. Probably need to lose about 70 pounds also.

I had a BBK CAI in my 95 that had the filter in the fender. Just go up from underneath, get a stubby screwdriver to tighten it and good. Now I can't speak to the CAI you got, I'm guessing it is the SR that was $60 on the Black Friday sale. I just know on the BBK it was easy.

Is there any tricks in getting a roll around jack under the car, driving up on blocks of wood, ect? I'm not a small guy and need to get it as high as possible. Or do I need to get a smaller jack?

I personally used roll on ramps ...... i use them often for oil changes and such. You can use a small jack to jack up the passenger side since the cai lies within that fender. All you gotta do is lift it enough to get a hand in there from under the car to either take off or put in the filter. But if you choose to do it well use a jack and jack stands....dont rely on only a jack since jacks have a tendency of possibley loosing hydraulic pressure and they may creep down on you.

You don't need anything you just reach up and stick it on the end of the CAI tube. Then go in with a stubby screwdriver and tighten it up. I did the filter in my 95 religiously. Just lay on your back and reach up under the fender liner in the front. Takes a little maneuvering but nothing crazy.

Thanks, I was using a nut driver. Not much room up in those finders. Will try something smaller next time.
