Well yesterday I got my SCT Tuner and my painted front bumper within two hours of one another so I decided to install it all right there considering I've done the bumper drill before and the CAI/Tuner was supposed to be cake.
I got my bumper going, and while waiting for the tint on the markers to dry I started on the CAI. This is where I got frustrated. I bought this JLT used from somebody on this forum who said they went to a supercharger, and they pretty much royally screwed me over. Think they were from. . . Georgia? Somewhere in the South.
These are my issues and hopefully people can help me out:
1.) I noticed that the heater hose hole looked like it had been bored out, and I wasn't completely sure but it looked like there was supposed to be a rubber grommet for a correct seal? I ended up using rubber washers for a better seal. Still wasn't that good
2.) My MAFS literally does not screw into the CAI. I made sure it was the right way, but the screw holes just do not line up and the sensor sits a lot farther off the mounting surface that it's supposed to and there's no directional arrows for flow as stated in the instructions. What's up? I ended having to go get some small screws to close the holes up and the MAFS it just sitting snugly in there
Scary.. I know.
3. My last concern deals with the heater hose again. Are you supposed to reuse the stock plastic connecter that the hose fits snugly over or was there one in the kit that I didn't have? I just feel like it was protruding into the CAI and might inhibit airflow.
Anyway I jungle rigged the CAI, uploaded my 91 race, and got my painted GT bumper on, and I haven't tripped any codes from driving it around almost 50 miles last night pretty hard. It feels faster, it really does. But it just doesn't feel as fast as everyone talks about, and I wonder if anyone could shed some light on whether my CAI may be the culprit. Thanks in advance.
