    Word of advice, if you have not yet done so, extend the wires on the MAF as two of mine just ripped out and its a slight inconvenience to extend them after they rip out.

    The CAI gave me no problems, but the stupid wires that connect to the MAF sure did.

    I had to make more room for mine as well. Saves a lot of screwing around later.

    Cut the tie-wrap holding them together to loosen it some more.

    Do you find any differences between your old CAI and the MS CAI you have now? I find the MS gives a nice progressive growl right through the rpm range from about 3000 to redline. I'm just curious if you had that with your old intake.

    The old one seemed to surge between 3500 and 5000 rpm.

    The MS seems to surge at 3500 rpm (probably due the throotlebody opening), but then be more gentle through the range. Not as peaky, I guess. I can't remember if the numbers support this or not since I've yet to get my car on a dyno.

    Edited in digital pics to original post.

    I know it's been a long time, but I think it'll be good for reference.

    Every one I'd ever seen has been louder than stock. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that a lot of that has to with the fact that most OEM intake systems are engineered to be quiet, which also makes them restrictive, and thus mod friendly.

    Big-Ed, the warranty has changed back and forth since I got it depending on who you talk to. My dealer will warranty it for 1 year. As for gains, no clue since I have yet to dyno it. It feels like there's more power, but that could be a number of factors, including wishful thinking. I hope to dyno it later this year.

    The CAI (or even short ram for that matter) will make a very subtle change in sound, but nothing that noticeable..... unless of course you gun it off the line or rev it.

    If you're worried about the sound increase compared to installing an aftermarket exhaust system..... don't even spin your wheels on this one. Those are 2 completely different levels of sound increase.

    Argos, yes you will definitely notice a change in the sound (read much louder), and by itself, you won't notice any change in power.

    It is, however, the first, and basically least expensive step in a series of add ons such as: Headers, and Exhaust etc that when added together, will produce noticeable gains.

    There's a guide in the How-to section if you want to install the CAI yourself. But SSG doesn't do installs.
