Default New Intake YAY! (pic whorage != 56k)

So today I finally got time to put in my new intake using the pipe from Autozone and a Samco coupler and the K&N X-stream RX-4750 (big pimp). I was going to remove the TB for cleaning after I got the airbox off but that turned out to be more of a pain than I thought....I removed 3 nuts and still could get it to budge and then found there was another one underneath a black piece of metal that had a nut that I already removed on top of that and to remove the black piece of metal I had to loosen another nut that had the exhaust crossover in the way and was like impossible to get to after many attempts:


Anyways so I gave up on that and just fitted the new intake and put it on...I cut off about 4-5in of the tube (more than bonnebomn guess bc i have the larger washer tank) but it went on pretty nicely...until I remembered the IAT sensor which doesnt fit in the k&n filter hole that was provided....so for now it sits in the intake tube with a piece of ghetto tape wrapped around to hold it on...im going to eventually make the K&N hole bigger with a drill. The filter does touch the washer tank which I probably will fix eventually and is about a half an inch from the compressor. So I just need to move it a bit to get it out of the way. But for now it works and I have a wire nut stuffed in the IAT hole on the K&N filter for now. As you can tell I was a bit short on time. Anyways here are the pics!!!











So I fired it up after putting it on and checking everything to make sure it was tight and immediately I noticed the noise and I was like wow hehe revved it up a bit to hear it and it just sounded awesome already. I went out to dinner with a few of my friends and as soon as we got on the main road I floored it and hear the awesome roar of it. It was like a old school muscle car sound almost hahah almost! The best part is how amazed I was at how much more powerful the ride felt. It was very nice I love it!!! more power along the entire bandwith i can really feel it! Im very happy with the results and will be making a heat shield and possibly ram air to bring cool air straight to it. Can't wait for Bonnefest now!

That L27 'evil nut' is a BITCH. I dealt with that twice on Jseabert'* 93sse. The Series 1 L67 is much easier to remove the TB from. Not sure on the S2 L67 or L36. Never done those.

I'm at the same snag.... I'm thining of dremeling my evil nut off.... The bracket would be more then adequate with the right nut on there, and the one on the TB. Any input? (wow that sounds bad)

Don't dremel it. Use some break-free on it, let it soak for an hour. Then use a 6-point socket on a swivel (universal). It'll come out.
