Finaly, I got one for 70$ Can (50$US).

A car specialist in Mtl was able to order one for me.

Just done a 1200km (700 miles) round trip for on twisty icy roads. Great car for the long haul, excellent grunt and the handling... WOW!!

So, let's get to the point.

1. About the modification with the open box air filter in the Tech Mod. in the site. I have a concern, because I just open the hood, and, wow!!!, the inside bay of the engine was full of salt grime and slush from my long drive. I can't imagine doing this mod. at least in winter time!

Any other way of doing it, so I won't have to wash and reoil my filter after 700 miles???


2. A mechanic told me not do to this kind of modification, since it will increased slightly the oil consumption??

Is it true?

3. A last comment, so much fun to read interesting topics in this forum, I love it!

Merci!

Never heard of a car consuming more oil due to increased air flow.

Your air filter should catch all the extra dirt and dust in the car. As for consuming oil, I would not worry about it unless oil has already been magically dissapearing from your car. None of my sentras ever burned oil.

I know that your exhaust will be a little bit darker because the engine might not combust all of the gas that is in the crankcase due to the added airflow. I guess they call it running the car "rich". Correct me if I am wrong of course.

I would imagine this is true cause I was reading and article about a ram air system running richer with the added air flow,,,so i'm sure it would be the same for a CAI,,,,almost the same idea.....

doesn't the ecu work with the sensors to ensure it does not run rich? (IE: MAF, APS, IAS)

If CAI makes your engine run richer, how large is the decrease in mileage?
