Svede OTRCAI



Just ordered up a Svede otrcai. Now the wait begins. A friend back home in Nebraska who owns an 04 gto has one and said I should def get one. He stated he waited for 4 weeks to get his I also got the fast acting iat sensor and the harness as well.

Garage
It's extremely easy to install buddy. I on the other hand made my own using Svede's DIY instructions. It works well and looks pretty clean under the hood.

easy install, take your time and you will be fine, test fit it and consider removing the center plastic hood liner retainer directly above the intake as it tends to rub, speaking of time you could be a year older before you get to do it

here is mine

Installed my Svede yesterday. Everything went according to plan exect when I put the cover down after I had cut it out I accidentally stepped on it breaking it into two pieces, so now It looks silly. Took it out for a test and no codes popped up. The hood does rub it some but I know its down as far as it will go and the hood shuts as it normally would and opens as it normally would as well. I drove her around town and went out of town and opened it up a bit. In all I drove around for about an hour. I popped the hood when I got home and was surprised that I wasn't greeted with a blast of super heated, singe your face hot air.

ok now that I have the svede installed its time to do another modification, im thinking headers, but I would like some opinions as to what the next modification should be, I only plan to ultimately have 100% bolt ons, the only mod im willing to do that doesn't include bolting something up is the cam.
