Well,
thanks to Cullen at StreetUnit (not to mention that I live about 20-25 mins away from there place) I got my CP-E intke today. It took me about 1.5 hours to install, mostly because I tend to get distracted by dirty things on the car and start to clean them while im working on the install. For me, the hardest part was removing the air scoope thats in the fender, that pushes air into the stock air box. The rest was rather easy and stright foward. The only other thing that took a bit, was getting it all lined up right and tighting it all down in place.
CP-E did a great job on the part. Very well thought out, and it looks really good. The instructions are easy to read and understand, and it comes with everything you need to put it on.
As for sound and power, I have only put about 20 miles on it, so the copmuter is still learning yet (I had the negative un-pluged for the 1.5 hours, per the instructions), but it feels like theres more power on hand, did get a chance to open it up yet. As for the sound, you now can really tell that you have a turbo car. Theres a nice intake roar from off idle to 3k rpm, but then theres a very noticable whooosh from 3k on, and when you left off and hit the clutch, theres even a nice blow-off sound from the stock blow off. I should have time tommorw to put more miles on her, and get the ECU reading the new air flow right, but for now..Its way worth it.....now im awaiting the TMIC from them as well as the CP-E programmer and the Turbo XS race pipe...Spring time is going to be fun around here...

I kind of feels like it, but I really didnt get the chance to get on it to hard, and only drove her 20 miles since the install so I think the ECU is still trying to figure out whats going on since the reset...Your still speacial, I got a silver one, you still got the neat black one...LOLOLOLOL..by the way, I think myself, Cullen and a few others,where getting together tommrow night aroudn 7pm at Beef O Brandies In Deltona.....

How long do you think it took your ECU to learn what was what?

It took about 100-200 miles. I still am heavier on the foot though, so that needs to be fixed.

Cool, I did not know your forum name. I know you will really enjoy the intake. Now you and I are in the same boat in waiting for the next group of stuff to come in!

I want to see the Silver too. Black ones are in my thread for the CPE Pre Production unit install. I kind of want silver, actually.
