i have an 09 ls(has stupid SAI) and just put an injen CAI/SRI. does this mod restrict air flow?

also, what did you use to tie down or prop up your secondary air intake(SAI) hose?
No, it doesn not restrict air flow. I used a zip tie to secure the SAI tube.

Right - but when you have the factory system, it keeps the oil in the engine, just circulates what gets blown by and what not...so I'm wondering if this makes your oil level lower over time...
Actually if I'm reading this correctly (and I am fairly clueless when it comes to cars) This doesn't recirculate the oil back into the system, this mixes the oil with the air and it burns with your gas. So adding this wouldn't change anything when it comes to losing oil or whatnot, just keeps your engine cleaner...

Very good idea, will have to give that one a try later this summer. Will probably use braided stainless to keep the engine bay looking good though. I dont like the look of normal heater hose.

I know this is a old thread, just seen it (been away awhile). Really good idea, I feel stupid for not thinking of it myself. I usually come up with crazy ideas like this. I'll have to do this with my Bolt and Blazer (old one, blows oil into carb).
