My CAI shipped today so I will be posting a full review soon. Looking forward to getting a quality intake!

Anyone else switch from one brand to IE?

My screw keeps wiggling itself out. Has this happened to anyone else?

Which one? The middle one of the "stage 2" piping?

Yea, happened to me twice. I put a nut on the screw and it hasn't come off since.

That might be caused by excessive engine vibration or movement due to premature oem motor mount. My stage 2 tube bracket failed 2 times ( first old design and 2nd revised bracket).
I replaced engine & tranny mount to torque solution poly mounts and hope solved problem.

Yeah from what Iíve read it seems people have most issues with the rear pipe due to OEM mounts or premature failing ones like you said. Never had this issue with 034 SD mounts. Got a really nice used set of Racingline engine and trans mounts that havenít had a chance to put in. Hopefully I donít hate them. Already have the Racingline subframe mount.

This is my opinion, I think it's because it's not tighten down properly. I installed the Unitronic Intake @ 6k miles, so the car was still pretty new. And the screw fell out within a week or so, after installing. From what I remember, it was a pretty tight fit, to get a tool back there and really tighten it down good. So if you ever have to take it out and put it back on, you either have to really crank it down or apply some loctite. Or just go the extra step and put a nut on it.

So just bit the bullet on the 30% off for the IE tune! Having a little buyers remorse but hope itís worth it! Anyone with their stage 2 software? Iím currently GIAC.
