Well took my car off the road for a few days to take my intake out of the fender and do some underbody coating, and i found one nasty filtrer! I also found out why my passanger side headlight would not go in, it was a little rock blocking the lower mount from going in, that little rock caused me so much anger!:mad:

Hear is a pic of the coating.

i just got a pro-m maf for christmas, and have a dr speed cai. well when i put the maf on, the engine seemed to be a lil more rough at idle. so 2 days ago, i jacked up the car and thoroughly cleaned the k&n filter with that recharge kit they have. put it back in, idle is smooth, and gas milage is up a lil too:thumbs:
