Okay, Im installing a focussport CAI on my 06 D20, and I got so far as pulling out the old setup when I noticed a hose on my car that isnt on the pictures from the CAI kit. Also theres no provisions for it on the new CAI.



Pointed out in that picture. If you look at the pictures on

http://www.focussport.com/coolflo.htm

Its not there [paranoid]

Am I SOL here?

is that a heater core hose or something to improve fuel economy?
maybe not, but thats my guess...

I have no answer since I can't say whether or not that fitting can be eliminated.

Hmm my PZEV had nothing even remotely like that, my accordian tubing just had that little black/green gadget on the other side, whose name always escapes me. Odd though that someone else hasn't encountered this before?

Bump for ya Phil, I'd say if no one here offers an answer, shoot Randy @ FS an email with this pic attached and see if he's heard anything.

Looks like something to introduce heated air into the intake for easier cold starts.

That's so weird...

Was there an EPA MPG hop from 05-06 or 06-07? Cause if it was 05-06, maybe that thing has something to do with it, then 06 and 07s would both have it? Or maybe just PZEV 06 or 07s?

The drill and grommet idea Seems plausible in theory. Just not sure if it would actually work out in reality. Plus it seems so... permanent. But it could be worth a shot!

This thing started in '06. My guess it has something PZEV related. I'd like to know more.
