On a side note - I will be trying to find a way to seal my IAT sensor because I can almost freely blow air through the plug and sensor. I imagine this does not help with boost! It lets way too much air through it. Anyone ever fix this?






Ok, now it looks like my filter...for some reason it looks longer with the red cover on it...cool

I have the plastic IAT in the rubber grommet.

I ordered a 3/8-18 threaded IAT and aluminum bung to weld onto the charge pipe. Hopefully this one seals better!

That's what I run-- threaded IAT in a bung. I put a little teflon thread sealant on it and it's been fine.

I used the threaded one as well but just drilled a hole in my charge pipe a little smaller than the threads of the sensor and used a socket to tighten it then put a bead of jb weld around it, it's been fine for 4+ years

Done that, they sent a filter that doesn't fit. So I called them and they said they no longer have the type I/we have. They did take the filter back but I had to pay shipping and if I remember right, a restocking fee. So I ordered one from ECS as their picture of a air filter is what I/we have but what I got was a filter with the outlet NOT in the center.

The one ECS's web site has pictured:




Is NOT the one I got

What chnaged with A&A? I'm confused....I got a kit less then 2 months ago which had the latest dongle. It came with the air filter mentioned by the OP. So were there even more updates or do you have an older dongle??

No, I need one that looks exactly like the picture. The one A&A sent me was too skinny and too long but the outlet at least was in the center, lol.

I really like this idea as I am installing a SC at this time so it has a brandy new clean filter....But, I saw a youtube video where a guy tested airflow. It was very telling to me, at least....I think I will just have to clean my filter pretty often. I appreciate this post though as it was very informative and many folks might be more concerned with dirt then airflow and this thing really filters dirt well. For me, the last thing I want to do is limit any airflow to my SC...
