I'm not a Man (Airaid CAI Install)

I got my Airaid CAI from JDP Motorsports on Friday. Great service by the way. Jordan is second to none. Last night I began to install my Airaid and got to the part where you have to install the rubber seal around the top of the cold air box. After a half hour I walked away cursing. My Wife came to me five mins later and said: "I got it on for you...ROOKIE".

I went out to the garage and yep, it was on perfect....I'm not a Man!!!

Dude that happens to me all the time. As a guy, I don't have alot of patience. My wife always says let me do it, takes her time and gets it done. But I'm the type of person that would rather be throwing 100 lb dumbells around @ the gym, then putting a jigsaw puzzle together though, lol.

Poor SSOOCH!!!!!!...I don't think any less of your manly abilities for that!!!...

I applaud your wife for being a loyal supporter of you and your Camaro....not many wives(OF COURSE I AM NOT INCLUDED HERE, GUYS!)would be as supportive...............

AND LADIES, I AM NOT TRYING TO STEREOTYPE HERE!!!...I just know that it would be hard for ME to work under the hood af ANY car...I am a teeny tiny bit 'clueless' in that area...

Yeah, I give your wife credit for even going out and taking a look at it, plus bonus points for doing the job.

Happens to me all the time----She always suggests taking a break and go back to it (which always works BTW) but I always want to just get it done

FYI for anyone installing the Airaid CAI, when you but the top seal on, heat it up with a hairdryer, it was the hardest part of the install.
