I might just rerun the sound tube as suggested in my other thread. No use pulling it off at this point. Already spent the money. LOL

Cool...PM me and we can set something up. I've tried a few other shops, but they're not the best at returning phone calls.

I may also need a new fiberglass hood installed...yay Ford aluminum hood quality.

Called the place and had them order the parts for me, and they warranty there work. I made an appt for July 11th since I'll be going away this weekend. Real nice guy to talk too.

When you get 3.73's its a beast...that's been discussed many times. Feathering it isn't a easy thing...with my automatic it wants to jump down and go!

Yeah I already told them that they'll be people calling them, but for the meantime I'll be the Guinea pig, I'll let you all know how it works. Too bad can't have them install it this weekend..

Hey Alex, I couldn't attach this to a PM so I will leave it here. Proof of sending from UPS for the old 3.73s.

DId you just place the sound tube over the "nipple" of the CAI or did you drill out a hole and place a new peice for the sound tube to connect to?

I noticed with mine it made no sound difference placing it over the existing "nipple" but once i drilled a hole out and placed the sound tube over it, the sound really came through. Aski MUD he sold me his stock airbox with a custom adapter for a sound tube. I ended up not using it in favor of the CAI and modded that for the sound tube. 2x the sound!

More importantly how's the pick up compared to 3.31s?

Ah yeah, you won't get any sound that way. If you do decide you want to hear the sound you'll have to cut the nipple out. It's the only way.

I'm curious to see how shunc's shop turns out. I'm not looking for gears at the moment, mainly some transmission maintenance and d/s install, if they do that sort of stuff.
