Now at idle yes you can get bogging issues (but can be fixed by a vented hood), but as for driving the CAI is no better than a SRI.
On the SVT motor there is a hugh difference down here in the summer. I had so much bog with my SRI. When I took it off it was like instant power

Yea I can see it a problem on the SVT/Zetec/SPI, as for the Duratec there's no issue.

You won't see it, you'll have to pull into the apartments since I live behind the building right by the bell. You've seen my wheels before but that was a long time ago, probably a lot has changed. Maybe I'll park it out front for a while lol.

So, I got the bug body off and the frame ready to start stripping. I took some pics to show that Evan is correct. I am a redneck haha. This is how you get a body off without a body lift, or help of a friend.





Only 2 major rust spots found. One under the front driver's side, and above the motor. But, thats where the other bug comes in handy. The body is near perfect on it, but the heater channels are rusted completely out and they are just too hard to replace.


Oh, and Steve. Auburn will most likely win, because thats the week after the gators, so we are going to get raped lol.
