AEM CAI Installed!

Woo hoo! I finally did it. After a week of running out of daylight from when I got home from work, I finally got my AEM CAI installed! grin

I just got back from doing a test run, and I friggen LOVE IT. I would have driven more, but I can't afford more gas right now lol.

Well I'm sure I could have used scissors, but I have a plexi glass cutter that worked really REALLY well. It was like cutting thru butter wink

Stop bitching about your gas prices, and try living in norway. We're paying about 5 dollars for 1 gallon.

And a used 2000 celica gt costs about 30.400 dollars.
that's a GT, not even a GTS. a used GTS runs at about
49.000 dollars.

So be happy with what you got. and if you ever come to
norway, bring LOADS of cash. prices are insane here.
