|Juicedz||Glad to hear you like the results. Mine should be shipping out mid week.|

After installing yesterday, just checked under the hood today and the CAI is sitting nice and snug, nothing loose. There is already a bit of discoloration on the blue filter (brownish) but that is probably just the dirt it's filtering. Fortunately this filter can be cleaned with water.
It made my car so much louder... it's like a lion's roar when I accelerate .
I've noticed my speed/anticipation ratings have gone down since I put the CAI in, but haven't tracked actual avg mpg yet. I will on next fill up and let ya'll know.
Thanks again to Gandalfthegreyfocus and her bf for helping me! I could never had don it without you! (seriously)

thanks. after driving some more today the weird noises stopped. my friend who installed it said that it could have been the computer learning the new airflow. Anyhow, no more weird noises... just pure roar!
if I could describe the increase in "loudness", i would say something around 1.5x-2x as loud as stock... 8)

got the Steeda CAI. It sounds great, although I've heard a few weird noises, kind of like rattleing, but i'm not sure if that's normal.
It took us almost 2 hours to get it in with a bit of trouble in some places. The weather stripping kept sliding off when we pushed the assembly in the space so there is no way to seal it off perfectly, but good enough. The whole assembly is held in place by 3 rubber stopper-looking things, it's kindof weird. The upper weather stripping seals to the hood though which is nice. I'll keep people updated on if I get better gas mileage. But so far it definitely feels more powerful and has a deep, rumbling tone now. It's also significantly louder.

|jdubhack||Yes, of course. But I would try the drop in and snorkel delete. Dyno numbers show it is VERY close to the same gains and hundreds if doars cheaper. But your car, your money.|

|mishka||but an air intake can still be done right? Gandalfthegreyfocus suggested a 2012 Steeda CAI w/ heatshield... will that work fine on 2013?|

Non-turbo. The MK3, with the exception of the ST are non-turbo, or NA engines, and there is not a tune available.

|mishka||what's NA mean?|
