|lets_FOCUS||So I went to have my car checked to find out what my check engine light was on for, and it said all 3 of my O2 sensors were bad, and that my engine was running too lean!! This is ridiculous! I can't afford to replace all those, is there a chance it has to do with the intake rather than the sensors themselves? I can't imagine it being anything else, I mean how would they all go at once??|

|lets_FOCUS||I found a really cheap CAI online, threw it on the car, and it definitely made a difference. It did set the CEL on though, I have yet to fix that, I'm going to stop at Autozone tonight to find out what code it's throwing. I only paid 60 bucks for it, so I wasn't expecting much, although being that it's wayy better than stock, I will be investing in a quality one soon. My inspection isn't up until December, so I have plenty of time to get it resolved.|

I did the same, with the Spectre filter.
Worked great until I started experiencing the heat lock and poor acceleration.
Sorry to everyone who disagree but, I picked up an Ebay CARB exempt 2.5" CAI and replaced the wire mesh cone filter it came with, for a K&N cone, had to use the handy spacers that came with the Spectre.
Noticed a great improvement through the bar but best at higher RPM. vs. the SRI seemed better at lower RPM. It tucks in pretty solid above the splash guard and in front of the wheel well. 01 SE.

I have an automatic also.
I had another thought, has anybody gutted the original filter, pulled out the stuffing, then put a cone filter on the top??
From what I remember there is some type of cap on the top that has some rubber straps, I am sure a cone filter could be put on there if the box was empty.
I have to wait for better weather, got 4 bad days ahead, just got home in an inch of snow...arrgh.

I have an automatic and it did not like a 90deg bend in the tubing right before the intake manifold. I reconfigured it 3 diferent ways. I even gutted the piping fron the inner air box and it did not like that bend either. that's why i went with the short ram intake.
I also read a thread a while back not to use PVC and I can't remember why.You might want to look for that.
