Just wondering if anyone knows how much installation would cost for the Injen CAI. I don't have access to tools or technical knowledge to install it myself. I live in the San Diego area, anyone know a good mechanic out here?

Perhaps one of the board members might leave in the same area and have one installed prior could help you out.

Man.. I just got my Injen CAI last night and started to do the install... go the front end off... got most of it apart but couldn't get the bottom hose off of the stock air tube... I have no car experience but thought I could get through the directions... but once I noticed I bent one of the metal tubes a little bit.. I decided to wait until December 6th and get it installed at Modacar for $65... ugh.. talk about depressing.. I just didn't want to go further and make it worse...

What's Modacar? Or Where's Modacar?

Where does everyone feel the most performance increase with their CAI? I seem to feel it most when in second gear...

Wide Open Throttle, VTEC ;)

You can further improve your Injen CAI's performance with a better air filter.
