Well, I installed the CAI this morning. Easy as pie. The instructions said if I had a manual tranny, to blank the smallest inlet on the tube. My car had three hoses to begin with so I installed the two smaller hoses and capped the opening for the sound tube since I took it off. Drove it for a while and had no issues at all. I'll wait to install the axle-back exhaust when the temp. is at least sixty.
