AEM Cold air does sound nice. Now just add NOS and the sound is even better.. Plus the power is amazing

Congratulations!

Just a heads up, double check and make sure all your hoses are where they should be. If they're not, you may get a check engine light.

Also, make sure the Intake tubing itself is not rubbing against the frame or wheel well plastics. Specifically in the area where you had to cut through the wheel well. If they rub, over time it will wear a hole in your Intake. It happened to me.

Be sure to clean it with the AEM filter cleaner kit or the K&N filter cleaner kit. I like the K&N filter cleaning kit because the filter oil comes in an easily applied spray can.

im not sure how it is on everyone elses car, but when i cleaned my filter, i found that it was rubbing against the plastic- it hadnt made a hole yet, but it wore off some of the powder coating. so i cut more of the plastic away, and now, if the wheel is turned to the left, you should be able to see the bottom of the Intake pipe, free of plastic touching. that should be safest thumbsup

I have a Zex kit installed on mine... It is very easy to install and you can buy it from a ton of dealers for arund $600.00 or less. It is the cheapest way to get an extra 75 hp... With the Zex kit it shoots a stream of gas and nitrous into your Intake only when you put the pedal to the floor. It is the safest kit out...
