Default Cobb CAI installed

Yesterday i installed my cobb cold air intake for my 2004 TS wagon (w/IAT). The directions were straightforward, though i had to have them emailed to me as i couldn't find the link on their site and none came in the box. Only two minor gripes:
1. there wasn't enough slack in the IAT sensor to extend to the intake pipe with all the tape and stuff and i had to get to the wires all grouped together to cut the tape inside the black cover thing. This would probably have been easier had i longer skinnier fingers. I have no idea if this varies from car to car or if they all are like this, but it was cold out and I was frustrated, yada yada yada. Once i had enough slack, i just rewrapped the wires in electrical tape.
2. The silicone pipe at the fender (to prevent rattling) is larger than the pipe and kept sliding off (within a mile every time). This could be due to the fact that it hasn't been above freezing in almost a week here, but i am not sure. I had to tape the the silicone to the pipe, and all is well now.

As for performance, i was told 10whp/wtq and it was probably right. This thing is definitely faster than stock and i can't really feel it slower than stock anywhere. At cruising/idle it is just about as quiet as stock and at full throttle is pure rice. I love this thing to death. Had the part at my door 7 days after i ordered it with ground shipping too. Good job Cobb!
