Simple instructions

1. Don't waste your money, don't buy one.
1a. If you already bought one, send it back.

2. Buy a tuner if you actually want to accomplish something.

It's pretty easy.. follow these steps and you can't go wrong

1) Remove stock airbox and some other crap
2) Install your new CAI
3) Enjoy!

See? Not so hard.. get to er.

Talk about cash in the trash. A pure waste of money. TV shows get paid to preach the CAI system to the public. That's why you see them all the time installing one on any vehicle they can get their hands on. That's why I don't watch those shows anymore period. I suggest if you've already bought it, return it. even if you do buy a tuner or program it won't make a difference and if it does, probably not enough to notice. For those that do have one, pay these guys a visit: www.thermotec.com . You want the Cool-Air Tube Heat Sheild. It's a lace up deal and takes about 10 to 20 minutes to install (give or take).
