Halltech CAI

My review of the intake.
Install was kinda a pain. It did not come with instructions.
The way the heat sheild connects to the car in my opinion is pretty crappy.
The little bracket is made out of 1/8 thick plastic. Why not aluminum? Well overall I give this intake a 6.5 out of 10. It did pass the butt dyno but for price I wouldnt do it again.

Just the opposite for me. Soon as I purchased Jim e-mailed install instructions. 30 min. install MAX.

Purchase from Halltech direct or a different vendor?

I ordered from marylandspeed.(great company!). My problem is with the heatsheild and the bracket on it. Cheap plastic. It broke after a couple days. Plus I feel the filter is a little too big. It shouldn't touch the inner fender liner and washer bottle. I'll take some pics tomorrow.

Here is a pic of mine. Mind you I installed it at 930PM so it was pretty dark.

Directions are on their website - install for me went well and fit perfect the first time.

If you were having trouble, you might have emailed Jim Hall. His customer service is second to none......period. This is the fourth CAI I have bought from him and I have never had any quality or installation issues.

Sorry you had so much trouble and you aren't happy w/ the product.

My opinion: The air intake is excellent. You can tell it delivers great quality air to the engine. It sounds great. It feels great when you drive. I think the design of the intake tube is great.

I think there are parts of the heat shield that could have been designed better. There's a part in the front of the heat shield that sits lowest in the engine bay that rests right on a metal line. A simple alternative design could have had a cutout for the metal line that's there in the lower engine compartment. And I'm talking about the metal line that's near the radiator, not the one that's over the fenderwell.

Jim has provided me with quality customer service. He's answered all of my questions. My filter fits perfectly now. It doesn't touch anything. He told me how to adjust everything so it all fits nice now.

But yeah, how easy would it be to write out some clear, step-by-step instructions with pictures. For people like me, that would have been a big help. And it would probably cut down on calls and emails from customers asking for install advice.

Overall, I'm sticking with Halltech. I think my car will appreciate it.
