Exclamation Need help on COBB CAI on MY02 RS

I just recieved a Cobb CAI in the mail. Before I install it, I want to know about the hoses that are supposed to go on there. i have a MY02 RS, so am I correct in assuming I don't need to run ANY of the hoses. So I need to plug all 3 of the holes? What should I use. Also, My company uses a welding shop often, and they could probably plug them permanetly. Is that wise? i don't want a piece of tape on my intake to one day fall off.

Please give me some advice on the Cobb install on a MY02 RS!

^check it out, very nice site with detailed installation walkthroughs

are you talking about tossing out the tubes they gave u and welding the holes shut?

omg.

...............

ok, go to scoobymods.com, read the instructions on installing an intake, and then come back here and say 'my bad' =/

also, it makes no difference that you have a 02 RS, it's the same engine as 98-01 RSs.

First off, i would never say "my bad"

Second, I have an intake, Ganzflow, which doesn't run any silicone tubing. The Cobb does. If the Ganzflow does not need lines run, I am guessing the Cobb won't either on my02. I'd rather not guess that is why i'm looking for help.

Third, I don't have a MAF.

Default I don't have either

intake but my understanding is they are quite different. The Ganz retains the stock airbox which is where the breathers/pcv hoses connect. The Cobb deletes the airbox and hence should need the breathers/pcv connected to it. Did the Cobb not come with instructions?

Yes, but the instructions are somewhat vague, which is why I was hoping that someone with a MY02 RS who had done this could help me out.

The one hole I am concerned with is the 3/4" on the primary tube that was for an air temp. sensor(?) on a 2000 Legacy http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...hreadid=269994 .

Sorry I didn't specify about the temp hole in my original post, as it is my main concern. I just wasn't thinking about the airbox vs. non-airbox and the tubes. My bad

Again, I know I could put tape over it, but I would just feel better knowing it wasn't going to leak. How much of an issue is this?

So anyone with an '02 RS done this?

Uh, yea, I did one on an '02, but I thought the instructions were pretty good. Let's see if I remember correctly...OK, longest hose goes from drivers side valve cover to the bung closest to the TB. Then next longest hose to the passenger valve cover to the "T" fitting. Opposite end of "T" goes to the PVC thingy on top of the engine, to the left of the trottle body. The littlest remaining tube connects the "T" to the bung further down the intake tube. Does that make sense? Seems kinda like how the insructions explained it...

When you remove the stock airbox to install the Cobb CAI, you'll have 3 hoses kicking around. Those hoses need to be sucked on. You have 3 convenient holes in the CAI to do just that. Connect the hoses to the holes in whatever order appeases your aesthetic soul.

All that being said, it looks like he used a current bung to attach a temp sensor to. It looks like 2 of hte vapor hoses are joined, and I don't think it comes that way. so unless he modified the bung for the temp sensor, you don't need to worry about it. If he did modify it, then you may need to join 2 of the hoses like he has and plug the hole.

hope that helps.
