Yes, outstanding. Hemingway-like, or a bit of Heinlein. You will soon have a following.

Great story! I have the same scoop, but haven't installed it yet, and your post makes me even more eager to put it in! And I have to agree with everyone else, that was maybe the most well-written post i've ever read!

Great writing man! But as soon as I read that you let a co-worker's husband do the work AND this was the first time he did it, I was waiting for the turn for the worst! The part where the intake falls off or something! lol

4 mos & 6k miles ...what took you so long? My first mod was at 43 miles when I put in the skip shift eliminator. Two weeks later it was the Hurst short shifter. In the past two weeks I put in the CAI , like you I studied and studied and wwnt thru a dry run so I knew what to expect, glad I did because I stumbled across of few things that I new how to address in the actual install.

If you think the CAI made a differnce, make sure you set your fuel table to the high octane table by resetting its fuses ( see numerous writeups on the forum for this 15 sec mod ... giddyup) and install a ported thortasl body ( more GIDDYUP than the CAI).

I've read hundreds of posts on here before; yours however, takes the cake. You sound like a professional writer. Are you? Enjoy that intake sound, I never get tired of hearing mine.
