Considering putting on a new CAI on my 2002 zx3. What does everything think of this:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2002...m14QQhashZitem310092706981QQitemZ310092706981

So... basically, will it fit on my car? can I install it myself? should I install it myself? who wants to help me install this cuz I'm a noob and dont know what I'm doing?

I know its not AEM, I'm hoping this will be a quick and cheap upgrade that will help with mpg and other good stuff.

SO!!! WHAT DO WE THINK?!?

Thanks everyone.[wave]

My first CAI was a BOMZ CAI off Ebay and I paid $60 and it was one the most poorly made CAI's I have seen. The parts are of low quality.

So the one you're thinking of buying, $35, I would save up to buy a better one. Save yourself the headache and wasted time installing this. Just my $0.02.

You get what you pay for...

And to answer your questions...

No it won't fit your car because the one in the link is for an SVT. Look for one that fits a ZX3. Yes it is easy to install and yes you can install it yourself.

Im on the other end that. I purchsed a cheap cai off of ebay and i had no problems with it whatsoever. The only part of it that I didnt like was the elbow to the tb. Seemed to me that it would actually restrict airflow how it is designed, but you can fix that by buying a different one.
