So, trimming the bumper. Is it just trial and error? Just cut some then see if it fits.....cut some more....try to fit.....etc?

basically. You'll be able to see where it's hitting, and keep trimming until it fits.

I'm using my stock cap. Make sure you poke a tiny hole thru it so it will not pop off under pressure. Dummy-cord it as well.

THe one flaw I founfd on the kit and seems to be common ifs the MAF Sensor housing they give you. the MAF sensor bracket is just spot welded and glued on with gasket sealer. The gashket sealer has little holes in it which will leak air. I am not using this piece but I bet there are a lot of people running this and don't realize they are leaking boost.

And that is as simple as picking up a 2 dollar tube of silicone and making a seal around that area.

+1, I noticed that immediately on mine. I scraped off all the old red stuff, dremel polished the aluminum bare again, and used ultra-black RTV.


as for what intake to use with FP green, you'll probably need a BigMAF. I did, and I'm on a 20G.

does everyones overflow can have a hole in it next to the cap? Is this for a hose or just to prevent pressure build up?

the hole is to put the overflow hose in, without the hose it would be useless. you re-use your stock cap, it fits perfectly.

lol, oops! You know what I freakin mean though. Still losing air at the MAF sensor so it may be reading one amaount of air and another actually makeing it into the motor. Also, anyone use the L shape piece that comes with the Bumper beam hardware?

Just wondering if anyone ever ordered the XS Engineering CAI and verified fitment? I saw the home made pep boys one but really don't want to run the plastic setup. If no one else has I may guinea pig this for everyone.

Probably an assortment of bent pieces and straights, hopefully I will be able to use 2 of them and a cone filter to mate up with the included MAF housing and my silicone inlet tube.

I couldnt find a use for the L shaped bar. No need for it anywhere on mine.
