Cool Installed Cobb Tuning intake on my 01 RS

Last friday I finally recieved my intake! It was on back order for a while and before that it went through a lengthy R&D time. The removal of the stock system is fairly simple and took less than 20 min. The instructions were helpful but I recommend printing out a real-life picture from their site to help visualize. The hardest part was slipping the breather hoses onto the block. It didn't say it in the directions but I used the sqeeze-ring hose clamps that came on the OE hoses to keep the new ones nice and tight. There is a braket that the direction tell you to bend up; it's located on the passenger strut tower and is a bronzish-goldish color and holds a sensor. I found it MUCH easier to just mount the sensor on the one of the existing holes (3 in a row) on the strut using one of the bolts and some heavy duty 2 sided tape. This also gives a cleaner look. My only other word of wisdom is that Cobb doesn't tell you that in order to remove/install the longest hose you have to be a finger-contorsionist; OR, simply remove the 2 bolts that hold on your winshield washer resevior and hang it out of the way! It looks great and sounds great! To quote my dad, "It sounds like a V-8!," and "...sounds like ya' got exhaust!" If you drive normal no one would ever know, but when you get on it, it gets louder and changes tone as the revs climb. Cobb Tuning gave excellent service and I would recommend them to anyone. They even 3 day'd the intake to everyone that had pre-ordered.

I also installed my cobb intake on sunday. But I have a borla header and cat-back. When I installed it I had no problems it took no more then 30 minutes. But it was easy. Anyway I can feel the loss of low end tq but that's all the mods together. I sucks but after about 1500 to 2000 rpms I notice a big difference. Mean from 2G's to 6G's its all pull. But I switch at 5500 RPMS becouse after that your just makeing noise. And know that I have the cold front coming threw florida my car runs like a champ. Now I did not reset my ECU and I want to put NGK platiums in then I can see what I get with different plugs. Well next is either a S-AFC or the cobb tuning throttle body. Not sure but most likey the S-AFC.

Sorry, I don't have any pics yet; hey Jag, did you get my pm; hey Pimp, from the things I hear the next best thing for ya would be the AFC or a raising rate fuel pressure regulator. It seems like most people don't see much results from a throttle body unless they have an aftermarket manifold for it to flow in to. Oh yeah, I did varify with Cobb on the new location of that senor I moved, he said most people find it easier to just bend the braket, but removing it is perfectly OK too. Thanks for the luck guys!
