LPE CAI installed

LPE shipped me their 2005 CAI for $209 (free shipping). I immediately tore into the box and went to work. The install is rather simple and I'm very, very happy with the overall fit and look of the final product.

It gives a nice sound from under the hood, but since my mufflers are chopped...the LS2 makes most of the music.

Only complaint would be that the directions seemed to be based around the '04. There are a few steps the '05 requires that the '04 does not.

Other than that I'm VERY pleased w/ this intake. I'll snap some pictures this weekend.

JMJ80:

The picts may be of the LS2 but theres one step that tells you to pull on the stock airbox "firmly" to remove it. It fails to mention that there is still a torx bolted bracket (top side of air box) and the MAF wiring harness still attached (lower engine side of air box) to the air box.

Not that any person w/ an IQ over 2 couldn't have seen this but they're so detailed in other areas, I'm surprised these steps werent offered. You'll have no problems w/ the install.

Picts of the install are up on my gallery. Sorry for the quality....my buddy's camera was on the fritz that day. I'll take better ones later.

There is also a picture of my muffler delete and rear fascia black lettering.

i just put mine in around 8:00pm last nigth. looks good. some steps are missing tho. took a few min to get around it. the directions dont talk about the wire at the bottom of fender well and the harness that is zip tied to the air compresor. other than that,i am happy. has a nice sound on both ends and i feel the extra kick.

here is my douchy install story: had the standard probs about missing steps, figured them out, finally got everything in and tight, put the seal strip across the top where hood meets...and i was like what are the other two pieces for?
DUH.. for the side and bottom..i had to take it all apart (lot easier the second time) i'm an idiot....a learning experience i love it though
