Thanks Keith! Yeah, I've talked my brothers into chipping in for the hydrosheild and the AEM filter, so looks like I'll be taking that route. Thanks again for all the help!

hmmmm... this is turning out to be a bit more expensive than i foresaw- from what I found the AEM filter runs for around $50... so theres no hydroshield or similar product made that would fit the cosmo?

Will the Injen hydroshield fit the Cosmo CAI?

I'm very satisfied with the hydro shield on my Injen CAI and I want to get my dad a Cosmo CAI for his birthday next month... I'm wondering if the same size Injen hydroshield that I got for my CAI will work on the Cosmo... Thanks!

Painting the edges of disks?

I have some free time this weekend and was planning on de-rusting and using rustoleum to paint the edges of my front rotors where they're gotten fairly rusty... I've never seen this done, but it seems like it shouldn't be too hard... Any advice on possible trouble I could run into with this? Thanks!

my feeling is that its shifting later because not as many rpm's are required to reach the same speed, so by the time it gets to the rpm point to shift, the mph are higher. its still shifting at the same rpm point so basically it seems like you can get to a higher speed with less efforti could be wro...

just an observation... since i put my cai in last week, my auto is making every shift at 5 miles an hour higher than it used to... is this possibly because it requires less work on the part of the engine to go faster now... meaning better mileage?

By having more power, if you kept the weight of your foot the same, wouldn't the engine consistently be at lower rpm's resulting in better mileage?
