Default Another new S&B CAI installed

Well, thanks to Grubrunner and this thread http://ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=116526

I ordered a S&B CAI via Amazon from S&B last week. Received it this afternoon and a mere 2+ hrs later, its in. Needless to say Im no mechanic and I wasn't going to attempt this until I read Grubrunner's thread. The hardets part for me was getting the wheel liner push pins out once the screws were out - I never did get them out but I was able to flex the liner enough to get to the bolts under the frame.

Took it out for a short test run and you can both hear and feel the difference. From a dead stop it does feel a little more responsive and when cruising and jumping on it, you can hear it working.

Here's a few pics:

Thanks for the great pics! Looks like you got the clear cover with the logo in the center as well....S&B must have been listening to Grubrunner!!!

I had mine installed a few days ago and have the same opinion as you. It looks awesome, SOUNDS sweet and "brown" when you step on it a bit and I feel safe having it enclosed like the stock air box. I'm a BIG fan of S&B!!

Congrats and thanks for posting the great pics

Thanks - I had it out this morning and you can definitily feel a difference - not Supercharger difference, but there is a noticable difference.

BTW, when I opened the box I was expecting to see a red filter as I have seen in the pictures but was surprised to see it white. I then realized that if you order the wet/oiled filter - the oil probably gives the white filter its red look. I ordered the dry filter. Well, the white does match my truck.

The hardest part for me was getting all the screws back in for the liner. I simply cut some of the fasteners to remove it. I had extras. I had difficulty getting all screws lined up to put it back together. I do have flares, I was cramped in my garage, and I didn't have daylight. (those are my excuses)
