AEM CAI INSTALLED, took my 11, yes 11 fukkin hours! (AKA the Turny Clicky Thread)

HOLY SHIT, last night, me and a friend attempted the installation, we started at 10pm, thinking we would be dont by 1 am, sine so many members said it only takes 1.5 hours, we said ok fine, lets just say were slow and double that..

Ok, first of all those first two screws dont come off no matter how strong you are with the normal screwdriver..thats when we went looking for the tuirning thiing that makes the ticking noise..so we got that, and used it, peice of cake right?..WRONG, the nexxt ones wont come out!..then our turning thingy with the ticking noise, thing stopped working proplerly, so we went hunting for another one..we finally found another one, and after two screws, THAT ONE stopped working. So the, here we are, car jacked up, by this time it was almost 1:30! mostly cause of all the hunting for tools at my buddiers, dads factory...ANYWAYS, we end up calling a friend to come to us with his dads turning thing that makes ticking noise, he brings it and guess what!, he brings the wrong shit!, its the same thing but too small, and we didnt have that thing that converts it..or whatever..SOO we had to call a tow truck to come tow my sorry ass back home, since we couldnt put the Stock thing back on, and we coulndt out the CAI on...so then while were on hold, my friend tries again, and 1 of the turning things starts to work!!! by this time it is like 3:00am, THEN, we get to this fucking screw that wont come out, even the the stupid thing fitted on the thing it was beside. So yeah, i dont even remember, but we finally did it, it was like 3:30am, and we start to take the splash gaurds off... i think i broke almost all of them off, when i got to the last 3, i figured out how to do it The whole night, we got 2 sparks from the batterie, hehehe, cause our tools accidently touched it..so yeah, we finally take off, or break off, (whatever you wanna say) the splashinggaurd, and then, we started to cut for the bypass, this was easy, except for trying to stay in the lines of that template. what the hell were those arrows for anyways, they all looked the same to me...

Then, put the bypass on, this part was easy, then fitting it properly was a whole other fucking story, at maybe 6am, we put it in once, only to find that there is NO WAY it will fit..then there are two holes that you can screw the cai into, if we could have installed it in any of those two holes, things would have been done maybe 2 hours faster. we ended up using the stock screw, anyone do this?.it was easier to gint..

ok bttom line, saounds AMAZING. very tiresom, had to skip work today, and now i am going to sl
eep.

bye

This is really really funny story

Eleven hours ???????? How technically challeneged are you guys? Well, at least you get it done, 11 hours later that is. Classic adventure of the CAI install. Put this one into FAQ under what NOT to do while installing the CAI.

Sounds like you guys were just having to much fun with this thing! Problem is to replace most non warranty- broken shit on these kind of cars will nickle and dime your azz to death.
Good to hear you burned the midnight oil to get it done because it's worth it.

"his dads turning thing that makes ticking noise"
That made my day.

My CAI was professionally installed by the infamous XEPHYR himself.

Flame away.

ok i just woke up, and everything is fucked.

i wrote that message taking naps in between everysentence like an old man...i SERIUUOSLY passed out on my bed RIGHT after that post.


ok i am glad you guys found it funny, but most the time we were looking for tools, WTF, so what if i called it the ticking thing, i am not a mechanic, plus at the toronto cl meet, when i asked where to get it done, everyone said do it yourself even though i said i dont know shit.

yes i regret writing that shit up there, but i wasnt thinking, i was TIRED. haha you guys got a good laugh atleast.. ok now i have some questions..


A) Is the FAT HOSE supposed to be bent where it is touching the stock hose?

B) is the filter supposed to be tucked away like that in the cornerr? i dont even see how it gets any air.

C) The sound is AWSOME especially after 5k, does the sound get better after a bit more driving?

D) after the second time we made sparks and fried a bit of our batterie while installing, we disconnected it for the rest of the job, so it stayed disconnected for a good 5 hours...do I need to still do anything with the battery? like disconnect it again for 20 minutes after driving once?

Honestly, the installation was not worth it, and it was only fun at the very end... at the point where we wanted to tow the car, it was really bad...felt like shit, but it came through

BTW we took NO BREAKS, 11 hours was straight installing/tool hunting, now my whole sleeping schedule is FUCKED.

Ok guys, go ahead and laugh, cause its all good, but try to answer some questions too, thanks..

Hey look, think of it this way, at least you didn't get your head stuck in the trunk pass-through. ( http://www.acura-cl.com/cgi-bin/ulti...c&f=1&t=007163 )
For what it's worth, most people assume that even if you don't know anything about cars, you still know your basic tools. Like a socket wrench. I'm betting that the socket wrenches that 'didn't work' actually just had the directional switch going the wrong way.

Hey, you didn't just learn about your car, you learned about tools in general, so that's a good thing!

Answers:
A) Yes, mine is bent pretty hard where it connects. It's bent enough that I keep trying to see if there is a better way to reconnect it, but so far I haven't found one.
Is there a replacement for that hard metal
dual pipe thing?

B) Yes, that is how it works. Remember that
the engine sucks in air, so it doesn't have to be sticking out there like some kinda ram air thing.

C) No, it doesn't get louder than it does after you first install it. Note that it only makes noise at higher rpms, so If you cruise it will be silent.

D) No, one disconnect is enough to reset the ECU and let it recalc everything.

thanks chod! thats what i was hoping to hear, and yeah i did learn quite a bit about tools, i guess..

but i really do feel like i built that part of the car myself, like it feels kinda better now that its done...but i also have the feeeling, that i fucked up, and its gonna fuck something up, and warranty wont cover..


Also, we didnt use the smaller hose AEM gave me, anyone else do this?

Uhhhh, I just reread your post, and you better check your air filter.

The problem is, you didn't use the screw
with the 1" rubber riser on it. (I think) So your filter may be too low. If your filter is too low, there's a chance that one of the bottom splash guard screws may punch a hole in your Air filter.

From the way my install went, I don't see how you can undo the screw you used and slip in the screw with the riser. You may need to pull out most of it and re-install it. You did all the hard stuff (the unscrewing of the stock junk) so this won't be too bad.

If you choose to pull it out and reinstall, DEFINITELY use my FAQ as an install reference. It should make it much easier.
See my sig.

Was it? Maybe you're okay then. Well,
check your filter to make sure it's not jammed against the bottom.

Another option is to pull out the push-screws
and use a twist-tie or something to keep the
splash guard in. That way there's no point sticking straight up for the filter to land on.

The push-screws should be relatively easy to pull out once you get the hang of it. Just pop out the middle slightly then pull the whole thing out. It took me a while to figure get my first once out, but after that it was cake.
