Where are you guys mounting the MAP sensor? I don't particularly like the current location of mine

I'll definitely post some feedback once I get it all installed. Just waiting for a stupid intake tube and crankcase vent hose to be back in stock.

I have a catch can instead, and currently eliminated the oil drain on the box, any input on whether this is a bad idea?

No clue tbh, hopefully someone more knowledgeable can chime in

I just finished soldering on the new caps and H bridge on my DME, the H bridge is tricky!
I ordered Kassel's kit and can report that it works as advertised. It's a very clever solution and quite tidy once you wire everything up. Be advised there are no instructions with the kit so you'll want to make sure you have everything sorted out before you pull the air rail off and run the leads to your DME.

Overall very straightforward though and the quality/price make it great value.

I would imagine as long as the drain is sealed off properly you should be fine as long as your CC works properly. Since it's past the filter you definitely don't want any air intake from that drain port.

Agreed, I picked up a used box recently and the drain port fitting was broken, so I chipped it out and currently have some Gorilla tape covering it but I used some on a skiff to cover a small puncture for 6 months with saltwater use and it worked like a charm, so who knows

I havenít run it yet, but need to figure out a more elegant solution before I do.

Awesome thanks!

Iím also planning to use for the ECU conversion and MAP sensor.

Default Re: Comprehensive CSL Intake Thread

I have been sitting on a Karbonius intake with snorkel (no flap) and would like to get it installed this winter. I can't seem to wrap my head around MAP, MAF, DME, etc. Also the drivability of each path and what's needed for installation.

I was thinking of going with an EPIC Alpha-N tune. From what I understand I'd need a vacuum rail (TTFS most likely). Any drivability concerns? Anything else needed?

Or is a CSL DME the way to go these days? How is that tuned? Can it pass emissions?

Thanks.

Anyone have any tips for getting the throttle body boot clamps on? Having a real tough time with them (the clamp thatís closer to engine side)
