Good thing was when I got my CAI installed everything was smooth. The two bad things are.....I hate the rough idle and I really think I have less HP from it. Z just doesn't seem to have the same pick up now. I have decided to go back to the OEM intake. Bad thing about that is everything was accidently thrown away. Remember to take everything out the boxs guys! :)

Anyway...I re-ordered the intake tube. I still have the airbox and everything. But does anyone have any idea where I can order the little part that is in the corner infront of the air box? Don't know what it is, had to remove it to fit the metal pipe through the bottom. And instructions on how to put the intake back in would help since I am a total noob. Any help would be greaty appreciated. Thanks so much guys!

Do you think they would question it? Why do I need it, etc? Anyone know that that part is called?

#3 this page may look like it is talking about something else, but it is a continuation of the preceding text.

at least now you can circle the part on the picture so that jason @ performance knows what you are talking about. good luck

& BTW, from the Technosquare site below...it seems some intakes may actually REDUCE perf...?!///

Changed air intake system
One of the major problems on this car was a feedback system that compensates for modifications. The oxygen sensors detects fuel mixture and will tell the ECU to richen up or lean out the mixture. This correction factor was way too wide, so some performance components upgrades (intake, exhaust) would actually result in a loss of HP below stock!
We adjusted the correction factor to reduce that compensation reaction. Our tests showed consistent power and torque improvement following installation of an intake system.
We will be conducting additional testing on various intake and exhaust systems for the compatibility of our ECU. Although we anticipate a dramatic improvement per component upgrades, some may require custom tuning to take full advantage of their performance.

I've heard the same thing, but I still love my popcharger.
