I finally found out I can get a CAI from KORE for my tib...I heard a rumour though from my dealer that it'll screw with the air sensor in the tranny and mess with my shifting points. Is this fact or fiction?

Thanks<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

it's fiction, in no way does the KORE auto-cai, mess with your MAF, it's not even touched, except for the fact that you have to put the silicone hose connector to it, other than that you don't mess with it... plus there's a honeycomb filter that doesn't let you even get your hands inside to mess with that sensor, so once again we prove how much dealers don't know... <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

What would happen if you removed that piece from the housing? Like drilled it out?

No, it does not pop out. It is part of the maf housing itself.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/angry.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

You do NOT want to take that part out. That grill is there to straighten out the air flow as it goes past the MAF, so the MAF can get an accurate reading. If you remove that, your maf can read inaccurately.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/mad.gif width=16 height=16 border=0>

How do I know? I was stupid and I dremeled mine out of my first maf. The car ran MUCH better once i replaced my maf with one that had the grill.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

I agree with Random... The grill needs to be dremeled out if you want to remove it. Brendan has done the same mod. I don't think there are any gains to be had from doing that.

Speaking of CAI's... I was privilaged enough to have been able to see the new AOS Speedstate CAI for automatic Tibs and Elantras.

Looks good even though it wasn't painted yet. It was installed in Brendan's Elantra and looks quite user friendly. Straight bolt on. You just have to pull the battery in order to get it in. The battery goes back in and there you have it.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Also got to see Kid Turbo's beast on the hoist while we were at the shop.
I have photo's of the new CAI and the turbo Sonata but I am gonna wait for Steven's ok before I post them.
