I have been told by some guy. That a car with a enclosed air filter and a hose that goes to the front of the grill which draws in cold air is somewhat like a cold air intake. He also said on some cars (just depends on the car) that a cold air intake will not make a difference or that it will have less power. Is this true or not.
If the stock airbox on a car performs well and it is replaced with a cheap CAI, there may be a performance decrease. On BMW's, the stock airbox is pretty restrictive so an aftermarket CAI should increase performance. I don't know what that guy was talking about with the hose thing though.

I love scotch. Scotch scotch scotch.
Well there is a plastic tube coming from my intake that goes from the box to the grill. Well i ordered a AAtuning CAI so hopefully it will be working better. I also got in my exhaust gen. 3 from aa and my flywheel and short shifter. So hopefully it will work out for what i am going to do.
Let us know how everything works out, especially the flywheel(after the long post on it). Post some pics too.
Edit: oh yeah, and if you are up to it, post a review of the components. I know I look at the reviews before I buy. Although it will be hard to distinguish just what everything is doing since you are doing them all at once.
yeah i'll get the pics, i just installed my exhaust today it sounds GREAT! I'll get some pictures of it. As for the CAI What is the fastest and easiest way to install it? It is a AA CAI. I doesn't go to the grill ( so no one gets confused)

Okay i am installing my CAI Right Now and I need help!! There is a orange sensor in my way. It looks like it requires a special type of screw it looks like a star with a nut in the middle, i thought it was an l wrench. What is it? Where can i get a tool to remove the screw?!!!
This was my first problem we had to cut about 2 inches off the heat shield so i can go over my airbag sensors. I called AA and they were closed so me and my dad decided we will just modify it, it turned out to be nice. I'll post the pics of what we did.
