i just installed the ds stage 3 cai and have some questions. the MAF connection is kind of tight, are there any extenders i can get? also i dont really hear the whizzing noise everyone talks about. i can hear it sucking air but nothing really loud. and finnally is the filters top supposed to point towards the wheel or the front bumber???

any help is very appriciated, thanx.

your intake should be pointed towards the groud.. and the whistling noise takes some driving to hear, and it doesnt happen when idling or when your first start to drive, only after a little driving and the right amount of throttle afterwards

and for your sensor, if its in the hole then forget about it, the extenders really aren't nessecary

dont expect it to sound like a BOV/turbo.

The MAF connection can be tight sometimes. I kinda had to play with the wire loom to stretch it out. I actually ended up damaging the wire and the dealer replaced the wire, giving it more length.
