FYI guys, i'm going to be selling my version of my Stealth CAI. it's for the guys who think the filter may sit a little too low. i'm selling the piping i added to tuck my filter up in the fender wall. PM me if you are interested.

It's actually not that hard of an install. I'll give you pointers if you decide to buy the piping with the filter included. I responded to your pm.

I was able to get a 3"id coupler then a 3" 90* pipe then the 3" filter on with a lot of stretching and grease. its worked for me. Here is my tutorial edit:
http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=218642

But im not gunna lie, it was a bitch to get on. i ended up puting the couple around a metal bottle, then putting various screwdrivers and Allen wrenches in between the coupler and the metal bottle to stretch it then grease. i almost gave up it worked out!

i recently tried this out and somewhat had success. It works awesome and you can notice the difference but whenever i hook up my mass air flow sensor the car starts to spudder at around 3000 rpm. its so bad that all through 5th gear i can barely go past 45. any suggestions? i've tried disconnecting the battery to reset the computer but no luck. it works just fine without the MAF but the check engine light turns on. any help would be greatly appreciated.

A little heat and those couplers really helps out the stretching process.

Excellent posts. I have an '05 ZX3-S, that I purchsed new and now has 56K on the odometer. My reason is down the road, to replace air filter and not for performance related but the cost down the road at the dealer. Is there a simpler air filter replacment for under the hood. I have the basic tools but my back conditions won't let me contort into tight places. Thanks.
