Your coolant shouldn't be boiling @ 212, unless you're running water only, which is another problem...

Let us know how they work

I'd suggest waiting until Mid-March before you put the 180 in. I live in Sauk Centre, about 125 miles down I-94 from you and I took my 180 out because I couldn't get warm in the car if the outside temp was below 15-20*. I plan on putting it back in when the low temps don't dip below +10*.

Ok, another question. Right next to the stock airbox, in front of the washer bottle, there'* a little electronic setup that looks like a small starter. Is this some kind of compressor?

That'* the air compressor for your air suspension and accessory outlet right in front of the trunk latch.

Would it make any difference for the CAI for the compressor to be relocated. And if so, can it be relocated?

It'* easier to run an aftermarket induction system without it that'* for sure. Some people with the ADTR have gone through their powder coating on the pipe cause of it.

Relocation is possible, you'll basically need to mount it, and hope the lines fit the new location, or extend them with adapters. Not terribly tricky, just needs a little thinking. If you do it, a writeup would be great. I'm trying to gather all the induction info in one spot.

Will the K&N RX-4750 fit with that compressor in the spot that it'* in. It looks like it would take alot of work to relocate the compressor since it seems to have it'* own little suspension.

And it'* a 3.5 - 3 reducer/coupler is what'* needed correct? Such as this one?

In most of the pics on here of engine bays, there isn't a compressor like mine. Was it relocated or did something get changed in one of the crossover years?
