Its here its here!!!

Just got my CAI about an hour after I started working on removing my lower plenum. Awesome!!! Gonna have a clean plenum, intake manifold, fuel injectors, all new seals, topped off with a new shiny CAI from AM. I need to hurry, lol.

Lol, that works . It was hot as hell the day I put it on too, and I had also removed, cleaned, and reinstalled the intake manifold and lower plenum so I was already slightly frustrated. To top it off, I had worked the night before so I had been awake for 26.5 hours by the time I was done so I was tired as hell to top it all off. Having one day off at a time sucks.

Re: Its here its here!!!

so why did you have to remove coolant lines etc to install the intake or did you also do a full upper/lower intake?
