Default Thinking of installing a CAI

2005 xB, just hit 45K. Thinking of maybe a few things and one includes a CAI.

Saw this one: http://www.injen.com/docs/other/sear...lID=154&Eng=L4

Then my next question, is this a real tough install?

If you can change a tire, you can install this intake.

Remember about CARB legality. My SRI was an easy install. CAI I would assume might be harder, but you should be able to do it yourself.

"DC Headers | Fujita SRI | TRD Exhaust | Hotchkis Rear Sway Bar | 8000K HID JDM Fog Lights
15" MB Wheels: Drifter Gloss Black | IPCW Euro LED Tails | IPCW Projector Fronts with Angels
FlowLighting Blaze 7 Underglow | 12" Kenwood Sub w/ 1800W Class D Amp | Neo iPhone Adapter | LED Dome
JDM Window Visors | Rostra Cruise Control | Aftermarket Front Bumper Grilles | eTrailer.com Custom Tow Hitch Kit"

this suggests it all. this do0d knows what he's talking about. He'd better be kidding about the underglow though.

CAI is a definite improvement!!! I did mine and it could not have been easier. I have a 2005 BSP xB. I average 35mpg.
