New CAI and tuner

Post by optras on Thu Mar 27, 2008 12:43 pm

I ordered the C&L intake and SCT III from Bama last night. It set me back a good amount, but I'm hoping it'll be worth it. I'll probably be running the 93 octane torque tune unless I need the Race tune for some reason. I also got the 87 octane for when I'm doing highway driving, hopefully it'll be a good choice. Apparently Bama's been swamped recently so it may be a week or so before I get my stuff, IF they have it in stock.

I think you will be happy with the results. I have the c & L and sct II and I was really happy with it. I got mine from brenspeed although I have heard many good things about those Bama tunes.

How do you like the C&L? I just ordered the JLT, still need the tune for it but hoping it runs about the same.

Runs great so far. I haven't had any codes or anything yet, so that's a good thing. The C&L is a VERY large intake compared to most of the ones I've seen. I don't know too much about the JLT but I'd assume it's along the same lines. Who's tuning for you?

My C&L intake/tune was a surprising kick in the pants with the tunes that came with the handheld. But it really came into its own after getting a custom dyno tune. Had mine since 2005 and haven't looked back!

I went with Bama Chips and the car flys! Got the 89 Torque on it now, and I chirp the tires through the whole power band. I have an automatic, and I think you'll be very happy with it!

Congrats own your mod Alex. Can you losen up the filter tube and push it down and tighten it again?

Is the heat shield plastic or metal? I think I might have a quick fix.

its plastic. since i dont have the ABS it uses a zip tie to hold it in place. You would have to look at it to really see what im talking about.

Got them on ebay, $350 including shipping 4 drilled and slotted rotors and 8 ceramic pads, 48000 miles, its time for breaks, I believe in taking care of it before it becomes an issue.
Now where can we meet to work on cars, my place is OK, but we will be working on a gravel lot, and thats just not nice for getting under a car.
Any suggestions?

What brand is that, the zip tie install really looks cheesy, we may have to modify it, but I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem, in fact I'm sure we can make it look allot better as well.

By the way heres a link to the ebay search for breaks and rotors

Ok. That would be great. Maybe you guys could help me redo my wire covers as well. Do you know if the R1 concept rotors are any good?
