when you say retune it do you mean reset the computer by disconnecting the bat or go out and buy a tune and have it tunned for the cai ?youd need to retune it, itll run like garbage without that insert
Unless you have headwork and hot camshafts, you really won't see much of an improvement from all that work.ahhhhh, that sucks . but thanks for the info guys, im just tryin to find out a way for the car to get more air. im going to take the f2 off this winter and polish the inside of it and see if i can get it to flow smoother. there is always a way to inprove things just taks a lil time.
new mass air flow sensor? does anybody have a part number? and im getting a new tb within 2 months. my mods in order is f2 cai, mbrp 2.5 flexback, tb, header, cams, tune. with all that i want to get every hp out of them that i can so if it means doing a lil bit modding to the f2 cai the reach this , im going to do it . i just think there is a way to reach what im looking for with out going f/i. im just looking for realistic goal with my dtec. i will in a couple years buy a block and then build a beast, but as for right now i wana keep it simple. some people dont think cams are simple but anything that is the top half of the motor is simple.Egz its like the cossie where they put the aluminum insert at the maf to reduce flow, its not a 3" opening at the maf. The F2 CAI does the same they have a plastic insert at the maf to reduce flow, like the stock maf tube.
If you pull it out it wouldnt run right since the stock maf is set for the stock size opening. You would have to get a new maf and a tune for it to work.
you really won't see much of an improvement from all that work. cams =not alot of work, headwork= my wife can take care of that. if it a lil bit of $$$ and alot of time , thats fine cause im always looking for somthing to work on , on my car. hell i craw under the motor just to lay there some times , its relaxing to me. these cars are like lawnmower motors , so easy to work on after you get the idea of what your doing.Unless you have headwork and hot camshafts, you really won't see much of an improvement from all that work.
