Yep you do. Be careful when putting the part with the seatbelt back on. I didnt put it in right so my seatbelts didnt retract right for a year! My gf broke my door when she slammed the seatbelt in the door. lol But i finally figured it out why the seatbelt wasnt going up like a month or 2 ago.

My header was $50, and the exhaust itself was $100. The CAI was $220. If I had to do it all over again, I would do the same with the exhaust, but either make my own CAI for waaaaaaaaaaay cheaper and still have it do the same thing, or buy a CAI used.

I love my FSwerks cai. Whatever you do buy one used.

The FSwerks cai is up and out of the way compared to most CAIs. Ive been through super bad downpours and never had a problem.
