K&N install questions

Hi, just put a K&N intake in and was wondering what to do with the forward sensor. The one that was attached to the stock cold air box.

Thx, Crispy.

Ive just purchased one for my 7 and it has a place for the sensor your talking about, if the car is running fine etc, I would just tape it up and put it out off the way, if the car is not good, you will have to do a modification so you can get the sensor back in.

don't you get the same power from a cai as a K&N drop in filter i understand that what you have set up there keeps the hotr air coming off your motor but I read up that the drop in does the same anyways looks good feel any difference

Yah, it really does feel like there is a few more horsepower added to it. Thinking of putting it on a Dyno to test it out.

If You Really Want Some Fresh Air To Come Into The Short Ram, Take Out The Hgh Beams, Take The Covers Behind The Headlights Out And Put A Screen On The High Beams For Some Real Air Rush!!!

How about about the noise factor? I put CAI on all my Subarus just to hear that boxer scream!!! ah the thought makes me need to change my pants!

<<<<<----Should have heard the Legacy after I dropped the SVX EG33 in it with a CAI (Check the Avatar)... wow

IF it sounds good I'll do it. I put one on my Miata once but took it off for it didn't sound all that great. I never expect a gain from these things just the noise factor for me...

not much more noise then before. I put the CAI in my '08 nissan quest and that thing screams. the beemer does do so bad. certain cars makes different noises. my VQ35 motor is a screamer for sure. most of the beemers i have do not though. i was hoping that my 325ix would have made a little noise at least. but nope......boohoo!

with crispy1st's set up and the high beams out of the way, that should make a descent amount of horses and great throttle response.

I saw somewhere else someone was worried about the added noise, but I haven't heard anything different.

ps. Just a month ago though I did have a magna flow muffler and pipe installed so as a result I don't hear anything except for that. lol.
