We designed the intake with the intention of the customer using their MAF as their IAT. That's not your only option though! Since different people run different IAT's, it's hard to make a one size fits all adapter plate. When we release our RSX CAI, I know we will include an adapter so that the RSX IAT can be used on our bypass manifold.

That said, an expanding rubber plug will stop up the hole and not block airflow at all. This one, made by Dorman is only $2.50 and should work like a charm: Buy Dorman - Autograde Rubber Expansion Plug 1 In. - Size Range 1 In. - 1-1/8 In. 02600 at Advance Auto Parts

Since the CAI is silicone, inserting any IAT is a breeze. Just drill a hole to suit and push in your IAT. That's how we've done it on our k-swap cold air intakes for years.

If you are running the stock MAF, you are good to go. Just install the intake, upload a MAP-based calibration to your ECU where the MAP uses the MAF's internal IAT (this is very common) and you're good to go. If you have flashpro, still have your MAF hooked up, and you have our intake, you'll need nothing else besides the calibration. No plugs, additional hardware etc. will be needed.

after installing this intake are there any spots where the cai silicone tubing comes into contact with another part, possibly rubbing each other?

You'll have to contact corsport. Hybrid Racing only knows about the people who ordered through them, not one of their distributors.

Russ, so I take it the intakes aren't shipping out today.

Any idea of when they'll ship?

Ok, I just interrogated a bunch of the guys who are in charge of the logistics of this stuff and got some dates for you guys.

Preorder cutoff date:
If we (hybrid racing) received an order on or before February 10th, you are in the first shipment of 30 units we'll be sending out. If you ordered through one of our vendors, you will need to see when they sent the PO to us to find out if you are in the first batch. If you ordered from a vendor on Feb 10th, but they didn't send us a PO until Feb 11th, then you would not be in the first batch. We have no way of knowing if a vendor's PO is for your intake or for someone else. You should contact the vendor you ordered from if you are unsure if you are in the first batch.

Shipping dates:
Right now, we have everything minus some small silicone tubing (for valve cover breathers and such), hose clamps, and velocity stacks. The shipping manager says his conservative estimate on the delivery of that stuff is March 1 for the first batch, and March 14 for the 2nd batch. We're going to have everything boxed up and ready to go before then so that we can start shipping ASAP once those parts arrive.

Sorry for the delay on these guys. We got blindsided when the company supplying filters and velocity stacks failed to mention that the shipment they sent a few days back did not include velocity stacks. We're going to toss a bunch of awesome sauce in all the boxes for everyone being such good sports about it.

The silicone from the cold air intake can contact the supplied radiator hose slightly, and the silicone on the inlet section of the cold air intake will contact the chassis slightly where it passes through the fender well. We've been monitoring all of the test vehicles for long-term effects of this and are pleased to say that the light weight, flexibility, and softness of the silicone intake has all worked together to prevent any issues from contact.

No problemo. I'm bummed these aren't shipping out sooner because I know a few guys here are dying to install theirs. Everything we're receiving is looking top notch though, so I know you guys will really get pumped when it shows up.

Install basically goes like this:
  1. Drain coolant (just loosen drain bolt on the bottom of the radiator and drain into pan)
  2. Remove battery (2 nuts for j-hooks, 2 bolts for terminal clamps)
  3. Remove Coolant reservoir (no bolts, slides out)
  4. Remove OEM battery tray (3 or 4 bolts)
  5. Remove bumper (something like 4 bolts/screws and a dozen plastic clips)
  6. Remove stock airbox behind fender, filter housing on top of tranny, and all OEM intake tubing (probably 6 bolts total to remove, maybe 3 or 4 hose clamps)
  7. Remove OEM MAF and MAF screws from OEM intake (1 electrical connector, 2 screws)
  8. Remove upper radiator hose (2 hose clamps)
  9. (optional) move chassis ground connection points that are behind battery tray
  10. Install battery tray (goes in with 2 bolts)
  11. Install battery (2 nuts for j-hooks, 2 bolts for terminal clamps)
  12. Attach coolant reservoir to new battery tray (slides in)
  13. Install new upper radiator hose (2 hose clamps)
  14. Install entire intake from top minus the filter and v-stack (3 hose clamps)
  15. Install valve cover vent tube, breather tube, and MAF (4 hose clamps, 2 screws, 1 connector)
  16. Install v-stack and filter (1 hose clamp)
  17. Reattach bumper (something like 4 bolts/screws and a dozen plastic clips)
  18. Pour coolant back in and burp system
  19. Make sure you have a MAP-based calibration in flash-pro before starting back up
  20. Tune
  21. VROOOOOMMMMMM.....BWAHHHHHHHHH

We'll have a fully illustrated guide available on our site before the 1st batch is delivered.

Ha, yes, flash pro. We use both often here, so we tend to use the names interchangeably here and we know what the other person means. Kind of our own language. lol. Sorry for the confusion!

Thanks for the update Russ. Kinda bummed that I won't be receiving it sooner, but nothing I can do about it so oh well.

Either way, I'm very excited to receive this kit and get it installed. Should be a breeze going from my ImportDPS set up to this. I'll check back for updates, in hopes that the units ship out before March 1.
