Installed my AEM CAI today!!! Video included!

Well I had bought the damn thing a month or so ago but didn't want to put it on because I wanted to get some warrenty work done. So after finally getting that taken care of I was free to install!!!! I had decided to take video before and after the install to highlight the difference in how it sounds! I am a little dissappointed with the capabilities of my camera as it does not clearly articulate how good this thing sounds! But I have them posted, just turn up your speakers a bit to hear the deeper growl to the second video.

As a side note I was very fortunate to cheeply acquire the AEM Brand New on ebay from someone from Michigan who had bought it but was afraid to install it because of the rain!! Its been a while since I paid for it but I think it was around $200.

ehh. I think i'm gonna leave the exhaust alone until I get the balls/money to go FI. I really wanted to get my TB ported but I dont have the funds atm. I figure either a ported TB or the front Strut bar will be next on my list. You cant see in the pictures but I swapped the stock headlights for HIDs! I love that mod! Wish they had come like that.

yes the HID's are sweet [:D] glad you liked the mod. the best one i got on my car so far and the sound is just incredible. the cai also makes the exhaust a little bit louder too [thumb]

I love my CAI too. I hate the little whistle noise it makes on cracking the throttle open, but the throatiness on WOT more then makes up for it.

So BMXer, sick of the boost yet and going to come back to the NA world? [;)]

Hahaha, those stupid losers from Michigan.... [paranoid] achmm.

Sounds real nice though. It might have picked up sound better by recording from the rear of the car, cus the fan was very audible.

Good work!

The sad part is you never get used to it.
It makes you run WOT alot ... spend $$$on gas.
The only "cure' is boost[:)~]
