If you look closely, you can see mine is moved to the left of the CAI. Lucky the wires were long enough to squeeze it right there.

Yea at first I thought I had a hole in my intake boots. Change those out and still had the whistle. That's when I knew it was the intake

It literally may be a deal breaker. I feel like it is more responsive though. t's nice under WOT but you compromise elsewhere with the whistle :|.

GL with sale I definitely love how the Long tube feels on the butt dyno. strong no hom0.

That was a good one.

I don't mind the whistle, it disappeared to my ears after a month.

J_block can you PM me some pics of your ballast relocation? I just have sitting there...not tied down. Wanted to get the M3 bi-xenon relocation bracket, but I want to see other solutions first.

Buyer might want to check and make sure the mounting/support bracket comes with this. I didn't see it in the seller's pictures.

haha. Really? I wonder if its even loud/overpowering outside the car with the cams and headers.... It may just be because im so close to the intake sound. Idk I dont wanna sound rice to the enthusiasts that are too good for intakes
