Yeah, weíve waited too long for a BK2 CAI. Iíll definitely be looking to pick myself up one when it comes to market. On his IG, he claims +13hp & +11tq. Paired with a ported manifold, should be some pretty good gains. Iíll be interested to see results once the community can get their hands on it.

Just keep the engine cover on the trunk and used it when it rains (once hood vents are in).
Cover looks nice, but how often do you see it.

Turned over 100k miles last night. Runs great. Still on all OE suspension.

I got a twin camera front/rear view and trying to figure out where to put the rear lens. Front is limited if I want to use the small screen and will be on the drivers side of the rear view mirror.

Looks like a good one, if i may ask, where did you purchase it from and for how much? Im tired of getting bumped/tapped by other drivers and having them deny it.

I got it off eBay. Prices are all over so do a search and watch as they range from $80 to $180 for the same model.

Man, I'm not much for dash cams, but I would really like a front and rear parking camera setup.

I don't know how well the rear camera will do for parking as it will have to be mounted inside on the back window.

The BlueSky was a pretty highly rate camera for the money a couple years ago.

I use to have another front facing camera but the battery swelled and destroyed it. This one uses a capacitor and has a constant power option for when you are parked.

Red R. Would like to see pics when you get the pieces mounted. Been trying to decide where to mount mine. Has anything besides the suspension remained OEM? Ha!

Installed my functional hood vents today. Theyíre not as well built as I thought theyíd be, especially for the price. Fitment is doable. The one in the left fits like a glove, but I think the one on the right got warped a little bit during shipment. Itís not as snug on all the edges as the left one. But just comparing engine temps when I was pulling into the garage to when I was pulling into my home, it was 10 degrees cooler. With the engine cover on.

I end up using 3m double sided tape on perimeter of the grills to make sure they fit snug. End up cutting very narrow strips as there's not much room for tape.

Also spray area that is cover up by hood vent with plastydip to blend in with a vent/no white showing in the corners...it be mate black. I did it even on my back car so it will not be shinny.

I got mine from importsharks.com. I think GC Tuner has some as well, slightly more expensive.

Sorry, one more dumb question. Im thinking of going with the C.F. V2.0. Are those prices for both vents or each individual vent?

Price is for both vents. At least thatís how it was from importsharks. I canít imagine GC Tuner would sell one vent each. The v2 are what I ended up getting
