Default Cobb Cai

I installed my CAI last week, and i notice that the black filter piece is extremley close to a metal piping of some sort. Will this rubing or banging against it cause damage?
Also there is a rubber tube which holds what looks like the throttle wire.
This is being pushed down under the filter will the stretching of this cause
problems?

the "metal piping of some sort" is likely your AC line

(is it less than 1/2 inch in diameter and shaped very rigidly?)

it might rattle, shouldn't be an issue though. I actually tensioned my CAI nearer the fender using duct tape


on my engine the throttle wire is on the other lateral half of the engine, so it is not an issue, but I think in your case that's not what it is. The throttle wire should not be covered by rubber..

I have a Cobb CAI. My Legacy has an Intake Air Temperature sensor, which is just a probe that plugs into the intake. Not sure if this is what you're talking about.

I gained power everywhere.

Try resetting your ECU. Unplug the batter for an hour or so...search for more details.

I noticed the power didnt seem as sudden with the CAI, but more even through out the power band. Did you reset the ecu? if not, then do it this way. Disconect the negative battery terminal, then depress the brake pedal about 5 times to drain any power out. then connect the neg battery terminal and go for a spirited drive.

I took apart the CAI and reinstalled it to align it better.
But it still pushes this tube w/ wire in it down.
The wire comes from a 4"x7"x2" box on the side of the passenger strut.
travelsacross the engine and to the intake manifold.

after receting the ECU is it normal for the car not to stall.
I have done this 3 other times now, the first time the car stalled 2 times
but every time afterwards it just boged a little than ran fine.

Nope. Just leave it unplugged and use the brake-drain method.

I know my 2.5 second gear gets my to around 50mph or a little more, i definitely could feel the power. One thing might be the flash program may need to be updated, i know i was running way to right and the CAI was a very low sound, after i got my flash program updayted, i got even more power. Wires, i had no prob with rubbing or anything, just the silocone tubing at the fender kept moving, i fix that with with wider silocone piece and a clamp. hope that helps

Yeah I dont get what your talking about either.

I too can go to about 50-55 mph in 2nd gear, and about 70mph in 3rd.
