hey guys... does anyone know where i can get a good short ram intake without causing a CEL. i'm really just looking for a louder supercharger wine without buying a cai or cutting the factory airbox.

My 2 cents - I just turned/bent the lower flat portion back against the front of the wheel well - its pretty flexible I feel, no stress lines on the plastic. It doesn't appear to be pushing much at all on the filter either. I also keep the drycharger on there as well. I drove it through the rain today (hit a couple puddles, wasn't trying) and when I got home, I checked the filter and it was dry... Having the lower part attached kinda defeats the purpose of the CAI, don't it?

FYI - I'm still learning...

That air box mod is one of those "WELL DUH!" types of mods. I have no idea why I didn't think of that. GENIUS!!

I did the AEM thing.. but now am thinking that a full metal intake might help to amplify the noise where I think the plastic duct "dampens" the noise.. just my 2 cents.

hind sight tells me I should have went Injen..... oh well.

I'm gonna break the whole "no questions" rule and ask one..

Any noticeable changes to gas mileage? My ss/sc is a daily driver and I'd like to do the intake/exhaust, but if I'm going to get 15 mpg in exchange I'll pass until I get a winter beater.

You will get better gas mileage

I don't know how accurate my DIC is (hehehe) but I routinely see it at 35-36 MPG while cruising on the highway with cruise control. I only have the AEM CAI at the moment.

Its not unusual for any intake to throw a code on the SS/SC. I decided to keep mt stock air box and filter for that very reason. Oh, and I love racing cars and claiming mine is stock because technically it is, sound wise

I have to check my window sticker, It may be that Chevy ratres it at the min average to be safe. My vaccum gage is about 20" of Vaccum when getting this mileage. when crusing down hill it goes into the 40's.

my window sticker is in my glove box still so I'll go check and write back.

Also I have not seen a CEL yet. the AEM intake has the Sensor in the same location as the stock.

ah man that sucks..

Hind sight.. I think I should have got a Injen CAI because I beleive the full metal tube would amplify the blower noise.. (yeah I love the blower whine) I think with the AEM kit the plastic ducting helps dampen the noise.

Yes, the AEM CAI for the SS/SC is 21-532, then a "b" for blue, "r" for red, and a "s" for silver. You can get them through AEM directly or (I manage my own NAPA Auto Parts) and I found out that you can get them thru Arrowspeed Warehouse.

it's kind of funny about the color options... you can't even see the colored pipe once installed.

I got all excited when I ordered the Blue version and the online pic showed a full size metal tube. lol then I open the box and it was a stumpy little pipe. at least the MAF is in the factory location along the length of pipe....

Where (what address) do we send the Old pipe back to Injen at. For the RMA process.

Thanks,

The Fujita is good but we have many complaints about the fitment of it. Performance is great, they need to work on the fitment though.
