Drove my baby out to Merrit Island, FL to do a little late night kayaking. Driving down a bumpy dirt road sucked but now I have an excuse to wash and wax her today

If you want to DIY your own CAI, at least go to the plumbing section and get PVC pipe and use the different curves to fab your own.

I had done that on my '05 grand Cherokee and it worked well.
well that whole system was a kit i had got from pep boys, it came with the hose. and turbulance? what do you mean? i had fabbed the boxes and put the filters on myself but since its been on the engine it has been running way better. and i dont think the pvc pipe would look as good lol its to bulky haha

Guess he never saw a 64 Ford Thunderbolt. Those flex hoses have been used for many decades and were inexpensive and worked well.

I drove it to DFW only to run into a rainstorm and get it dirty... oh well, the grass cutting can wait in the morning till she's clean.

What he meant by turbulence was the ribbed inner surface disrupts the airflow causing turbulence, but the benefits of the cooler air has a greater benefit for your car than the stock setup. If you were to switch to a smoother pipe you may get more benefit, but if you are happy with your results that is all that really matters.

Washed it, hubby called me in for dinner... came back out to wipe it down but ended up with some water spots so I guess I will have to break out the PC7424xp and the polish now. Working - it's cutting into my detailing time.

I washed today, too - but no poilishing necessary, not this time, anyway.... Mainly because I ignored my husband when he tried to interrupt me!
Look at this mirror finish...

I realized I am getting old after three young ladies followed the Camaro to the convenience store and I didn't hit on them

I better write a will.

All I did today was drive it to work this evening. A couple days ago when I got home at 5 am, I pulled the liner off the trunk lid, installed Dynamat, a little bit of foam, and replaced the broken escape handle with a new one i've had for a while. Now the only place needing a little Dynamat and foam is behind the headliner and under the rug.

Washed, Clayed, Polished and Waxed her today. First time I've done anything besides simply washing it, came out real nice but since it was getting dark when I finished I won't have any pictures until tomorrow.
