Interesting...

Those voltages seem to go lower and higher than what williaty referenced in the sticky.

Sounds like your experience is very similar to mine though. The catch can doesn't drain into anything it just collects the gross oil that gets puked out of the crankcase and that coupler is a standard hump coupler that I ordered from Amazon. I actually have an extra one because it came in a 2-pack.

Is that good or bad? Also remember I just had my comp reset dealer said could take a week or two to fully release and run right. Also I hate the 2 piece set up on crank hoses I'm gonna try to find a one long hose for each side. Hey where'd u get the bubble coupler at ur air box and the longer one at ur throttle body.

Ordered them both off Amazon. I have an extra hump connector, plugs and some hose. Would you be interested in any of that?

Cleared 100 miles. It seems the ECU has got it all figured out and it's running great. No CEL. Can't tell if it is making any noise. My exhaust is all like, "I'm sorry you can't hear your intake over the sound of how awesome I am."

One of these days I might get around to putting the silencer in and see if I can hear anything from the intake.

I got stock exhaust on mine so I can hear it and it sounds good. Sounds better when I took off that flat funnel piece on the front of the box

The piece that brings the air in? Probably a good idea to leave that on there.

I don't think it will make much of a difference performance wise. With the way the funnel is oriented I don't think it really brings much to the air box. I would be worried about other stuff going into the air box though.

No more than with it on and sucking stuff in from out side the car. Actually prob less bc it won't suck in water or bugs or dirt. I've had it like that for 6 months and my air filter is staying cleaner. I still have the piece that's on the hood that helps direct in coming air

So I've had mine on for a few days now. Everything runs great. Only thing I'm noticing is its taking longer to warm up. Or at least I think so these don't have a temp gauge just a idiot light that turns off when its warm. So question is has anyone else noticed this

Just FYI (if you already knew, disregard) the idiot light turns off at 120 degrees*. Normal operating temp is ~188 degrees*


*according to my scangauge.

It's a bit lower than 120 according to my Depo Gauge. I'd have to double check, but I am pretty sure that the bottom end of my gauge is 100 and when the light turns off, the needle still hasn't moved. Then after a few more minutes it starts to make it's way towards 180.

Where are you pulling data from? Did you have to add an aftermarket sensor? I'd be willing to bet that's the difference; the scangauge pulls all the values through the OBD port. I can see just about all the parameters the ECU sees.

Yea that's cool bit all that means to me is that its taking longer now to reach 120 than it dis before. So does that mean it has something to do with the intake.

I'd suggest skipping on the gauges and sensors, and just get an OBDII reader. You get a symphony of gauges and data from it. Either go with the ScanGauge II, or the Torque app for Android with a OBD/bluetooth dongle.

Brayarz, I can corroborate. ~120F for idiot light off as well. One thing though which suprised me is that during highway cruising, my coolant temp sits at 177F, whereas on my previous 2003 OBS, it was hovering more around 190F. Bad thermostat, or excessive cooling?
