[FONT=Times][SIZE=7][COLOR=green]OK: My alfa otto R cold air intake arrived today. I decided to check here for some installation help. But after reading the ADMIN too frequently asked FAQs; I began to think it is a waste to even change a 1992 318's stock air box for CAI. Should I resell/throw away the intake I bought on ebay for $35 plus shipping, or should I spend an hour installing it and gaining/losing up to 5hp and making the engine sound better/wheezey???

I seriously doubt you will LOSE horsepower, but you sure won't gain 20 or something. A 5 hp increase is pretty average for most cars running a warm air intake. A real cold air intake can give a greater variety of results (example: bone stock RSX Type S gets 21.something hp from an AEM cold air intake, where-as a Neon only gets about 9 more hp).

Slap it on, you'll like it

Human knowledge belongs to the world.

Does it have a plug for the airflow sensor? If not, you might be condemned driving around with warning light on your dash all the time. If it does - send me an Ebay link please
