That rear one is a huge pain in the ass...especially if you have big hands. It's the worst part in my opinion. Also do you keep the metal bracket that the factory box mounted to for the CSL box? Absolutely. If not, you don't really have anything securing it to the car except for the intake runners...yikes. The oval hole on the bottom I assume feeds ducting that you have to fabricate somehow from the bumper inlet (if you have a CSL bumper)? Probably easier to just use the OE CSL parts for that ducting, but you can fabricate something too...Especially if you don't have a CSL bumper.

Everything else seems fairly straightforward so far. Wiring was a b!tch....Even though it shouldn't have been.
See red.

Yep. Or have some one drive your car or rev it with you in front of it. It might not be totally obvious from the driver's seat if you have a loud muffler/exhaust system...but I can assure you, people outside of your car can hear you 1-2 miles away when you are on it from about 5k and above. ....At least, so my neighbor tells me.


Having this airbox -- I am going to be honest, it's totally transformed the car and the way I drive. It's become an exercise of self-control. I totally see where TheDoogan is coming from now...

The airbox is like a Siren's song. Once you hear it wail, you can't stop listening to it...You just don't want it to end, as it drags you into the deep. You will find yourself redlining the car more than usual, your mpg lower than usual, hanging on to a gear just a little bit longer before you shift, with the pedal pressed a little bit firmer and for a little longer than you normally would hold it down before letting off. One minute you are driving to the grocery store, and the next minute you are pulled into her melody to the point that you are at or near triple digits before you realize it. The negative to this (aside from safety) is that everyone else can hear that Siren's call too...So you better have some sort of RADAR up because while you are being sucked into the glorious sounds of that induction roar, 5.0 can hear you a mile before you get to them. It really has become an exercise of self-control -- Expect the same to be true for you all. The car just becomes heroine. What's even more crazy is that I have just been informed from my tuner that I have basically been running around with the CSL base tune (just rescaled for stock cams among other things for safety measure, until my IAT wiring was sorted; which it now is)...This weekend it's going to be getting a whole lot quicker from what I was told, when I remap it. I honestly am in disbelief....It already pulls so damn hard. Maybe it is placebo, but I swear it feels like each gear now pulls like the gear before it would with the stock us-spec tune. I anticipate my tread wear going up too, as traction seems to be that much easier to break in each higher gear compared to the stock tune. If it's all placebo -- Well, I got my money's worth!

Does anyone know if these are the right pins for the DME connections? Specifically the wires for MAP and IAT sensors that go INTO the DME. I don't want to cut the MAF sensor wires.

For those that are asking for another group buy: Karbonius is not looking to start another one until all orders from this one is shipped and complete. Totally agree with this; otherwise people will wait around for half a year if we start it today.
