I just installed this same combo last weekend and have to agree on the crappy instructions for assembling the CAI. It was a pain to figure out which bolts they were talking about just from the sizes. Would have been nice if they'd been in separate baggies marked A, B, C or something.
I have just left the ends of the large rubber edging and am planning on eventually getting some contact cement as well. It doesn't affect the seal against the hood, but it does look bad if you're showing off your engine bay.
Which tune did you load up? Performance or Race? I have only been running the Performance tune so far and I think I'm going to try out the Race tune tonight. I also am pretty sure my gear selection is off because I'm almost positive my speedometer is incorrect right now. The form had asked which gear ratio I had when I ordered the tune so I didn't think I'd need to change it when I flashed the tune but I guess I should have gone in there and double-checked it anyway.
