  1. Hi, I'll try to get this to attach, if it works you'll see the small red filter I put onto the tube.
  2. Hey, getting back to you guys on this issue. Sorry, my job took me out of town for a few days. So, I do have the unit installed and is working just fine but while working on it I came across a very weird situation which I can not explain. I had the vacuum hose just hanging and not attached to anything so I move it to a more protected spot were it was pointing straight up. I was going to give up on the CAI but tried starting the car once more and it started and ran just fine. So while it was running I moved the hose until it was level with the engine and it started to bog down and when I pointed the hose straight down it died!! I put the hose pointing straight up and it started right up without any issues and runs perfect. The hose did not have any kinks or pinching on it the whole time, just in my case it needs to point straight up!!! Why...I don’t know.
  3. Hey, need some help/advise. I have a 1999 v6 LE. I put on a CAI and cannot get the car to run. The brand name is Option Racing. When I installed the unit I ended up with a small house, about 1/4" diameter that came off of the bottom of the OEM air box and ran back to somewhere on the top of the engine. There was no place to connect to the new CIA. Anyway I tried just letting it hang out in the open, that did not work so I tried plugging it up and that did not work. In either case the car will start then die. The two other hoses were on problem and connected just fine. Can anybody advise what may need to be done?
  4. I just running 10w 30. This was more of an experiment tnat I want to do. I wanted to see if I could get any improvement for under $100.00 bucks and so far the results have been good and I did not spend the full $100.00!
  5. Hey people, with gas prices as high as they are, I wanted to see what I could do to squeak even better mileage out of my 94 LE that is a 4 cylinder. I have been able to get up to 40 plus miles per gallon consistently in the city. I made three improvements, put in a K&N air filter, changed the spark plugs to E3 plugs and lastly put a thing called the Tornado in the air intake tube. I have been running with this set up for about six weeks and it is great. Not only is the mileage better but also I gained a few more horsepower out of this little engine. I took a 250-mile cruse that was all highway except for about 20 miles of it and was getting close to 45 miles per gallon. I have 176k on this engine and it runs smooth!! I am thinking I might put in 8mm plug wires and a better coil to see what that does. Any thought or suggestions?
