CAI installed(pics)Update(sound clip)!!!!

Hey guys,

Yesterday I finally installed my CAI, took me about 2 hours but was totally worth it in the end. After taking it for a test drive I noticed a tiny increase in throttle response and performance but its nothing compared to a turbo.:lol: However, I love it and the sound it makes is amazing. Anyway here are some pics and I will try and post a sound clip tomorrow as it is 8 degrees right now. I also wanted to thank everyone who helped me out with this mod as it is my first engine mod.

Thanks guys,

Also when I first start it up their is a loud whistling coming from the filter, but after the engine warms up it quiets down. Is this normal, or do I need a new filter because this one is used.

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, I was in a rush and forgot about show & share.

Well it isnt really white but silver, does look white though. Anyway I love the sound it makes under acceleration. "Feel" wise it is nothing amazing but their is definitely a difference from having a stock airbox.

whistle is fine. its jsut the air being sucked through the filter. its louder on cold starts because its sucking more air.

looks good congrats

Great job! I did a quick 5 min thing on mine and just attached the cone to the end of the intake pipe, but its not that big of a deal.

As for the whistle, I hear the same thing on mine.

awesome. mmm AEM yummy.

haha you should get a nicer looking battery once this one wears down. Although i think i may have the duralast gold too but newer with the yellow top. haha

i love high cold cranking amps and extra power storage so i can sit around listening to my radio for ages.
