Guess i'll give purolator a try, used to use those but obviously was stupid and went to a k&n, and yeah considering i prob won't use my SRI again now i'll just cut the tube to attempt replacing the accordion. Honestly never should have went for a SRI, live and learn i guess. But i'm already running delta cams and a straight pipe into a invidia cat-back so my hp is quite nice for a 2.5i. I'm not big on speed so i'm fine where i'm at

I'd keep the stock intake pipe intact as a backup, working with those cheap aftermarket parts is easier than messing with plastic anyway. Not a bad setup (as much as I'd like to talk you into a high flow car over removing them). Practicing good shift technique certainly makes the car feel faster too. My philosophy is essentially technique over hardware anyway.

Will do, i won't mess with the plastic. What i will do is cut up the cheap aluminum 3" tubing from the SRI to take place of the accordion. and yeah i would go high flow but i've had enough headaches and spent enough money getting where i am now haha. But i completely agree, hp doesn't make u a better driver

I feel like I've accomplished something despite this thread being Groundhog Day. Williaty plays the part of Bill Murray, of course.

AEM is one of the companies licensing the Donaldson nanofiber media for their Dryflow line. That means it's a good filter.

There was a scene in Groundhog Day where Bill Murry was repeatedly stabbed in the eye with a blunt spoon by every new person who joined the town?

ok question :

I recently got a Injen CAI for my car (have not installed it yet, due to this thread, but it was uber cheap used), however this CAI has it's own location for the MAF sensor.

Should I cut that out and attach directly to the stock MAF connection, or cut below the aftermarket MAF connection and connect that to the filterbox (having removed the stock MAF location) ?

Is there any real difference, or am I worrying about nothing here... I'm just thinking location on the CAI could make for different readings ?

This is basically what mine looks like, only on mine, the the filter is attached where the second elbow is attached.



Any suggestions/recommendations are welcome.



Also, quick question Williaty, what software are you using to record your data with? (romraider?)

The Injen CAI and SRI are already documented to be just about the worst offenders on the market for this problem.

Sell the intake, buy one off ebay to cut up, spend your huge profit on strippers and blow.

I don't care about cutting this one up, I got it for $25!

so, remove their MAF location, and stick with the stock MAF connector?

I have the second piece, so I can use it to fill the space difference.

Yeah I'd leave the stock MAF housing in the stock location just after the airbox.

I HAVE A POTENTIALLY LEGITIMATE QUESTION
god help me if this has already been asked:

Q: How would having cams affect the location in the rev range and severity of the resonance?

I know it's hard to speculate on and depends on the cam grind I'm sure, but is there anyone with cams that can log data without a snorkus like in the first post to see?

Really? You have to ask if I've ever had cams?

I've had several different cams in this car and they seem to have no effect on the resonance. Which makes sense given that they don't change the frequency any.

Interesting. So am I right to say that the resonance has to do with air velocity over the valves and the intake track shape, not valve timing or duration?

Nope. It has to do with the stopping and starting of the airflow, the frequency of which is dependent only on engine speed. The cams can only shift the duty cycle of the wave, not the fundamental.

Finally read through the ENTIRE thread. What a great sticky, thanks for all the information posted. I now will have something to do on my car when I go home for winter break. However, I see that a lot of people got their SRI's to be chopped up for this hybrid mod on eBay for like $30-40 and I cannot find any for under $100ish.. Even the Cosmo SRI on their site is $95- a bit too high to just cut up. So My question is, did most of the SRI sellers on eBay stop listing them for so cheap or what?

Oh you fancy huh?

Nice, thanks for sharing.

Looks good, so long as those couplers have enough flex (have someone start it and tweak the throttle aggressively while you watch). Don't want to put too much stress on the plastic MAF housing, if in doubt cut the pipe shorter there and use a longer coupler.

EDIT: Can you estimate the total angle of the bend?
