Stay away from Spectre Performance products sold at Autozone and Pepboys, especially there filters!!! I had this thing on for a few weeks and got a DTC code on the Interceptor gauge pointing to the MAF, I popped the hood, and found this!

Whoa that'* not good.

Yeah, I wouldn't buy those cheapy filters. K&N is worth the money. And ajusa.com sells them cheap.

wow that cant be good! haha

where did you have your IAT sensor plugged in that setup?

Im actually bucking the trend around here and bought one of the new Dryflow filters from AEM, for it for 45.97 from AJUSA.

I havent built my FWI yet, im still waiting on Intense to send me some stuff.

I had always wondered what you guys do with the intake air temp sensor when you're switching to an after market air filter?

the guys that run the RX-4750 usually put it in the filter itself, because it has a hole for it.

The others usually drill a hole in the pipe and install a grommet and put it in there.

I believe the "Rice-pipe" that is so common here also has a hole for the IAT sensor.

as for me, I ordered one of the silicone couplers from Intense that has the IAT hole already in it.

Well, the stock air intake hose has a two pin connector, so I don't know how you guys get around that.
