My ebay package arived today. I have three different AEM pipes to play with and make a custom cold air intake. I was thinking last night, if you are standing in front of your car with the hood up you will notice there is quite a bit of room on the right side, anyone see a problem with runing my cai to that side? I think it would be less hot and also theres just so much more room to set up whatever works..

One other question, the one pipe came with a hole filled with rubber a rubber hole and a bung so is our MAP sensor, or air flow sensor circular where I could stick it in there? I will post some pics so you get a better Idea of what I have to work with and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Welp Ive got it on the car! It tucks right down in front of the opening for the fog lights.. It sounds crazy as hell, if you'be ever played need for speed carbon and used the WRX thats what it sounds like minus the turbo of coarse... I noticed a huge bump in performance and in gas mileage I have been driving all day and the needle hasnt moved, Im thinking I may be getting close to 29-30 mpg's now maybe Im over shooting that but we will see I will post pics tomorow... :) So I guess now I need to scrape up some change and go get that UD pulley and some other power adders... Even if Im in to tall of a gear it takes off pretty well I cant imagine what it will be like with that UD pulley and a cat-back, but when I get up around 80 + the car seems really loose in the front end any ideas on how to limit that?

cai's pretty much all sound the same.
I doubt anyone's sounds like this on here, but I think thats cuz I have a cheap stainless steel filter on it so theres not much filtering happenin right now just pure air wich is both good and bad... It just sounds nuts. I will get those pics up if it ever stops raining..

My aluminum short ram sounded totally different than the bms CAI but those are the two extreams
btw what does the bms intake sound like? And will you need a water bypass or water shield for it? My filter is getting wet cuz its way down far so Im just gunna cut it up a little higher for now but, Im afraid Im going to hyrdo lock my engine if I dont.

Uhm...good? lol. I don't know. I like it allot better than the short ram alum. one I had....much less raspy and more throaty. Id get your a video clip but you can't really here it over my exhaust :lol:

I have no idea how people hydrolock engines. From what I've heard many people claim what kind of water and situation they were in when they hydo'd there engines then I should have done mine over many MANY times. I've gotten stopped at lights, then driven through rushing water that was up to the bottom of my car. I have no fender liners so the wheel is right next to the filter. I've checked a few times and they filter will be completly soaked and dripping water too. But if you're really worried about it then the BMS intake dubs as a short ram if you wanna change it for the season. Or it works with AEMs bypass too
