AEM CAI Install Problem
The install went okay until the end when a few big problems came up. First, I can't position the pipe so that I can screw in the pipe to the rubber vibra mount. I even cut a big hole in the wheel well, but its just not fitting right. I think its the pipe from the ECU that is in the way.

Second, the stock hose from the stock airbox is not long enuff to reach from the OBD canister to the nipple on the CAI pipe. Does the AEM come with another hose? I bought this used and it didn't come with any rubber hoses.

Third, I haven't figured out what the 2nd nipple on the pipe is there for.

The car makes a painful hissing nose without the hose attached to the nipple.

you have to take out the stock bottom piece of the radiator hose. that will give you enough clearance to fit the CAI easily where it needs to be...
