I have a speedstate one, and it took about 1/2 an hour. Just have the right ratchets - large and small extenders. It's just basically remove the batter, some hose connectors and bolts . Really a very easy job for mine at least.

like scottie boy said, it's easy

if you can make toast and use a computer, you can do it yourself

just take apart the air box, and stick the new shiny cai on there. it's no problem, and if you run up on a question, you have a bazillion of us here to help you asap with lil wait :)

You know, instead of going out and spending $230 bucks on a CAI you should do what I did. I went down to the local parts store and picked up a piece of that flexable tailpipe (2.5 inch dia) for $7.00. I put it on and got the same amount of power that you would get from a $230 CAI. There was a big increase in low end torque. Just an idea for you so you could save some money <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

It actually looks good. It's stainless steel so it has the nice shinny silver color <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Hey, don't knock the guy...the "Random Special" is made of 2.5" flexable exhaust tubing. It may not be as pretty as a polished ceramic coated intake, but I didn't go for looks. If you want an intake for looks, get it chrome or gold plated! *lol*

Leave it to Random to Needlessly complicate things.

I paid 172 including shipping. I believe the HUGE cone filter (K&n type) would be about $50.00 alone. They pre oiled it. It has the perfect hole for the sensor before the maf and everything. Coated mandrel bent pipe that insulates the air from heat. If you have the cash , do it. Not trying to knock anyone, but I have more money than time and I don't want my car lookin' ghetto. I make over $50 an hour and it didn't make sense to make trips to the hardware store, etc. - probably 5-6 hours of my time at least to save $100.<img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>
