What or how would we deal with this?

note: manual trans will need a "T" fitting for the extra hose ya'll have

This was a "rumor" started my ME! I bought the first intake from ldc2335, and found that I needed an extra part... I thought it was a manual vs. auto thing, but it turned out to be '05 vs. '06. If you have an '06 you will need an extra tee, and another part to make it work. I have to get some service work done this Friday, so I will take pictures when I put it all back to stock, and document the install for y'all.


Speaking of this service, has anyone else received a notice saying that their 2.5i was released from the factory with too much chlorine in the coolant? They're going to flush it for free, but I'm concerned it will cause long term reliability issues... I already have 8 months and 10,000 miles on the thing.

Good point, sorry guys, just haven't seen any numbers as to HOW MUCH power it gives you, and wouldn't seem much to me if you only are N/A...but, I wouldn't know :icon_wink...

Anybody have a sound clip with the new intake installed?


The only reason I ask is because I removed the sound dampener on my airbox the day I got my car and it sounds great. I just wanted to hear the differance.
