Is the Injen CAI install the same as AEM?
In the installs section they have an Injen install, so I was wondering if you follow the same steps when installing the AEM?

About 50% the same. You don't have to cut up the ECU tube or put a coupler on it, and you don't have to replace the two hoses by throttle body side of the Intake.

So you are saying it's easier to install an AEM Intake?

Isaac shipped out my order yesterday, so it should be here by early next week. Hopefully it's an easy install.

So you didn't read the instructions? Do they instructions also tell you how to remove the other stock parts?

yeah, i went ahead and did it without the instructions. the problem is is that i missed a sensor and it caused a CEL. just follow the instructions step by step and you'll be fine. also get some valvoline choke/throttle body cleaner to clean the throttle body and mafs while you're there already thumbsup
