I'm in trouble :( Re: Injen CAI install

Guys I bought used Injen CAI, was one month used and the owner decided to get an AEM one. Well I'm missing the 6mm rubber vibra mount point described in the instructions. I just spent HOURS taking the bumper and air box off my car. What can I do?!? I need the car in working order. Can I install this without that mount point??? *sigh* I shoulda bought new.

The vibra mount is hold the the CAI tight. You can technically drive without it. I've seen people not put it on.

Ok assuming I can get this on without that, what is an OBD canister?Also what is the vacuum switching valve? These instructions in the installs section are confusing frown

You see that black thing that the black hose and plug are connected to? That's the OBD Canister.

You see that black thing also with the two red hoses in it? That's the vacuum switching valve. Just find that thing with the two plugged into it next to each other and follow the directions, you'll get it.
