    yep, they respond well to airbox mods as well as a better air filter...cheap hike in driveability.....

    remove the clip in lower part in the airbox, fit a K+N, and a decent cold air feed makes a noticeable difference..

    HELLO FRIENDS,

    I did convert the air ducts of my Vec 3.2 V6 into a CAI, I just covered all the ducts with NEOPREN so that heat won´t affect the air´s temperature.

    PHIL: I also have reprogrammed my car´s ECU with EDS.

    cHEERS!!!
