Wait i think I remember now. Its been almost 2 years so bear with me on this. See the little silver clamp looking thing at the base of the hose there. You will need to take a flat head screwdriver and place it inside that and bend it out some. It is ok to bend it. You will not break it. Then this will release that hose.

Does that hose have a purpose on this install? Like, will it eventually connect somewhere again?

Stupid question I know but I'm just trying to get some things cleared up before I get to deep into the install and have to turn back. Thank you though, seriously. Big help.

Oh and one more question? Do you remember how you got the 4 bottom bolts out of the underside of the air box? Directions say get under the car but I read somewhere that it'd be easier to just take of the drivers side wheel and go in through the wheel well.

My car was also pzev. To remove the lower air box I jacked up the car, took off the left front wheel, removed the fender liner and lower splash shield. Was still a bitch to get it out, I really don't think there is another way to do it without getting under the car.

The 2007 I drive is a PZEV. It has both a tube from the valve cover, crankcase ventilation, and a tube that is an EGR supply, exhaust gas recirculation. Both tubes connect to the rubber connector that is upstream
from the throttle blade. That is one of the pieces that the CAI replaces. Just phoned FSWERKS. They said that both tubes connect to the new CAI tube. I want to do this mod and am trying to learn to avoid problems. When I raced dirt tracks we used the outerware filter cover. They help keep the filter dry from occasional splashes, but the big thing is protection from flying debris. NO, I don't sell any of this stuff.

Do you remember how you got the bottom bolts out? Did you just wedge yourself under the car?

That's what I do when I'm changing the oil. It's super tight but I can fit. I know that I'm not gonna have to go back under there once the stock one is out. So if I can just muscle myself under there real quick without having to take the wheel and fender cover off it'd save a lot of hassle and time.

I think I just felt up under it for the bolts and did it by touch

Alright... It's installed. Ran into a few snags but eventually worked out.

My only concerns is that the intake doesn't hang completely vertical. The filter isn't perfectly aligned with the t/b, it's kind of closer to the front of the car. It's just look like its asking for trouble, also the hoses feel really tight.

Also, there's a weird hissing noise when I hit the gas. Sounds almost like a NOS injection. Does that mean a leak somewhere or has anybody had that kind of experience?

Yes that means there is a leak there more than likely. You need to find it so your cars MAF reads right and runs properly. Can you post a pic of the way its positioned? it should look like this>
