So I am putting in my intake and I find that the air injection hose isn't even really connected to wherever it should be. I think I found where it's supposed to be connected but it's pretty hard to get to anyone else ever have this problem? Insight would be nice

Are you talking about the hose between the head and the intake?

Comes up. Not down I can't get the hose clamp tightened because of how awkward it is to get to

It has to be the hose going to the head unless you have the secondary intake. Got any pictures?

Yea i believe he is talking about that one.

I never played with that hose. You said it wasn't connected to where it should be? Or was it loose and just came off? I think that would cause a CEL if you operate the vehicle with it off or am i crazy?

youve got to connect it to the underneath side on the new intake pipe right?

it was a PITA, i took the pipe off the TB and connected it, then put it all back on.

Crazy, that is the hose we were talking about with the oil catch can in an earlier thread this week. It vacuums out gasses and contaminents that can be harmful to your engine so you definately want that on there. You shouldn't be using a screw down hose clamp you should be using a pressure clamp.

Yea that's what I was talking about. It had a screw clamp on it. It was like not tight at all though. I think I managed to get it pretty tight(I hope:/) also anyone else think I should trim this up? Lol

OMG yes, that is doing you no good like that. Get some preasure clamps and hose from your local hardware store, will cost you like $3.

Yeah, I think their intention was to provide enough hose for all years and you can cut it down if needed.

Now did you get some flex pipe to bring the air up to the SRI?!?!?!
