Small update. The connectors I bought for the reverse light for the bumpers didnt work. Returned them and just bought mini butt connectors instead. The other reverse light came in the mail yesterday. The bracket for the dogbone should be in tomorrow. So tomorrow I will be working on Mikayla alot of the day. lol I will be doing the bracket first (most important) and then the reverse lights. If I have time, I want to see why my strut is so squeaky on the back right strut. It only squeaks when people are in the car. Oh and my car died on the way to school today. Just sitting at a stoplight and quit. The homeless looking man in the saturn behind me didnt enjoy it to much, but she started right back up like nothing happened. No lights, temp was still fine. I sat in the parking lot of the school for a couple minutes and ran fine. I checked my fluids and they were all the same as they have been. I just remembered though, there is a small crack in the big plastic intake tube. You can hear it hissing when the car is idling. Maybe that has something to do with it? What do you all think? Anyway to fix it besides ordering a new one? I am leaving for Ohio Friday morning, so ordering a new one wouldnt do me much good. lol Input please. :D

Normally I would never ask about something like this, but would this work? I would rather have an aluminum pipe. or oem, but the only oem one I saw was used and $40 or so.

Thinking about just trying tape. Its cracked near the left end of the plastic tube btw. where the hose clamp goes over it.

you want an oem intake tube? i have one for ya if so. and not sure if ram air would have a good power gain, it would depend on the angles and where it's mounted

I just want the tube really, not a filter or anything else. I may have to buy that tube off you. I guess I will take it off tomorrow and see how bad its cracked. May attempt to glue it depending on how big it is. Just would feel a bit better for the trip. lol

Probably the same way I do, driving like a granny most of the time.
