I have the dual CAI from NeedsWings and i was extremely happy with the install and performance increase of it. You could try emailing Rob if you are curious as to the in depth performance factors of the CAI.. he may have dyno sheets laying about.

I don't have the pully, so I can't comment on that one.

Unless you have a crank pulley or a supercharger pulley there is no need for a pulley saver kit. EuroCharge is making the C3 or equivalant supercharger pulley. Rather than a pulley kit, grab the catch can. You'd be suprised how much cleaner your throttle body will be afterwards.

I've only been here for around a year. Wife's in the military. Around 410/10 interchange?

I am off Canyon Gold Road north of Overlook Parkway. Need to hook up. You don't smoke cigars by chance?

I can't say I hold a interest in the hookah smoking, but a good cigar and a decent rum and I'm there.

I hope all's well with the diagnostics from the shop!

Let me know how that goes and how bad the cost is. Where's the place at / name?

I'm not much older than you at 30. Started cigars at 25. It's a love / hate bad habit, I must say.

Alright, and its called European Auto Werks, off of Nakoma by 281,
They keep their place spotless unlike regular mechanic shops, I would say check them out if anything goes wrong with your car
