Ok, so I have had my AEM CAI
on for about a year now. I went out today to clean up the engine bay when I could feel the Intake
knocking on something hard whenever it moved. I traced my hands down the pipe and discovered where it was hitting. Come to find out, there is about an 1" diameter hole there. It's been hitting on what I believe is the front of the transmission. There is a bolt whose head put the hole in the Intake
. I'm trying to figure out what is the best method of fixing this without replacing the Intake
system. For the time being I put about 5 layers of duct tape over the hole just to protect it until I can come up with something final. Maybe I could put a rubber intercooler connecter over it and secure it? I need something padded that will prevent this from happening again.
The hole has definately been there for a while. I haven't noticed any problems from it. The car still runs fine.
