    I have the prl short ram intake with stock throttle



    body, and when I went to install it it came with a crankcase filter (oil breather) but there are hoses on the stock air box that don't have a spot for connection on the intake. Has anyone dealt with this? And what did you do with the hoses? Pics below.... Thanks

    are you saying that all those hoses on the stock box have no where to go on the new intake? if so theres a coolant line going from the tb to under the crankcase breather, the new intake eliminates all the stock hoses except coolant by pass and pcv breather but that filter takes care of that, my intake has a fuel vapor hose going from the tube to the crankcase instead of that breather. thats it. i can post a picture of what i mentioned if youd like

    First is th pcv breather that little filter eliminates that and these other ones sorry about the quality tough to see are the coolant to the throttle body. The hose in the second picture is the top port on your tb, goes over to a port right under the pcv breather the last picture is just a Better view of where the collab those goes to from the throttle body, hope this helps you man!

    All those hoses in the middle are pretty much useless do a throttle body coolant bypass and you can pretty much eliminate all of them.

    Yeah the coolant bypass and pcv breather are all that is left after you install the new intake.

    Step 1. Remove both tubes from throttle body and put vaccum caps on the TB where the hoses use to be make sure you get caps that are a little tight so they don't come off. photo_2(5).JPG


    Step 2. Run coolant line from where it currently is to the black rail looking piece underneath it and you are good. That's all you need. photo_3(4).JPG

    If you do it that way it will allow the coolant to flow away from the throttle body and slightly reduce heat soak which might help a little more because you have an SRI

    I have the PRL CAI and it actually sounds like the car is breathing when you hit the gas I know PRL is not cheap but it's really the only way to go on these cars I have tried several different intakes and PRL is hands down worth every penny CAI or SRI.

    Nope, the base map doesn't do much. I have the n1 and the full race it sounds great.

    Uhm un-tuned, idk about the intake but with the dp it runs absolutely horrible. Very choppy, rich, and a little unresponsive. Now tuned, its a whole different story. Makes the car a lot of fun.
