Yo so i just installed my new pflo today..



just got a few questions.. did you guys notice that the slight tapping coming from the engine seemed to get louder? i dont know maybe im just being paranoid or maybe its cuz the engine cover is now off.. all things said its been running fine i actually took it out for a couple runs with my buddy's si.. he helped me with install

oh yea one more question.. the fucking heatshield was annoying.. those damn clips for the cover are annoying to get off.. and once i put it in.. it was damn near impossible for me to tighten the bolts that go on the underside of the heat shield.. anyone else have this problem? i got the right one pretty tight but the left one i could get to with the wrench so its just hand tight.. :iono:

also once ive installed my intake.. ive heard our ecu need to adjust to the new air/fuel ratio.. if this is true about how long does this take?

its probably cuz you dont have an engine cover on anymore so it seems louder. the tapping was always there, now just louder bc theres nothing blocking the noise. at least thats what i think lol.

Back in the 805!
I just realized I never went back and put my heatshield on. Ha Ha Ha I guess it has been sitting in my trunk for about 5 or 6 months now....
