ok, you have an AEM right? you know how it kindda boggs down when you first start the car ? well this mod will fix it . It has to do with the size of the pipeing etc... and the way the fins are. the stock airbox pip is 2.5, and the AEM Intake pipe is 3" it will look something like this when finished.

yeah, I have the AEM CAI as well and no CEL believe it or not, but the gains of the TPR on both low and high end are impressive and there's no bogging or cel's to speak of...

wow...wished blue bomber advertises here so that he can give ecelica.com members more options as far as Intake moifications. i mean us people in cali would love to stick this in our carb approved Injen and AEM Intakes...it would be a good compromise since tpr is not carb'd approved...
