this is just an update with the Sixth Element CAI install.. and some new parts going to the coaters.. the Injen intake worked great and is perfect for cars not running a tune..

the Sixth intake is a bit more pronounced in sound but actually has a lower tone.. bigger pipe lover tone.. the same thing happens with your exhaust people.. high tone seems louder than low tone.. but low tone travels further.. so a high pitched sound is loud near by but does not carry.. or pass through material.. like fire walls.. or floor boards

Looks awesome. Love the carbon hydro dipping. I want to do that to the rear diffuser and engine cover on my Rally. Super jelly of the 6EE FMIC. Hoping to see that for the VT's soon.

so took this photo to show the negative space the cold air filter sits in when instill in the Forte5 SX.. wile installing the carbon fiber parts on the bumper.. I found that he filter was rubbing on the fog light wiring harness.. and had rub it down to the bare wire.. its an easy fix sealer and tape.. no issue.. just keep an eye on it.. and im keeping that filter on for the next 5k or so and then switching over to a new Aem element 6th offers now.

the final result.. more Audi RS, AMG Black, than Ricer bling

So today I did a small available upgrade to the 6th Element duel oil catch can system.. I installed a Check valve on the PCV side.. the parts are a -6 an check valve ( it can be serviced) and a female to female -6an fitting.. I put the check valve rite on the can for easy of install. but most of you should put it under the motor cover.. where the factory line joins to the braded line. place ment should not matter as long as you place it between the catch can and the intake manifold. benefits.. it should promote long life to the catch can seals and prevent boosting of the blow back in to the filter element of said cans.. I have not seen any issues with seals for the past 27 thousand miles.. but a little extra protection as my boost levels get higher and higher is never a bad thing..

I am throwing out a really wild guess and will say auto parts store...
nope but you can get the -6 an check valve at a few speed shops.. -6 AN fittings like that are not super hard to find. but a speed shop will more likely have them than say a Auto zone.. I got this update form 6th Element Engineering..its part of an on going improvement to the products he sales.. and is included in the newer kits. I got my catch can system early on.. and inquired about this added protection. to my current system.. this up dates was available.

so for some new up dates.. if you don't know there is a current running up date with Hyundai and kia to replace the map sensors in cars that are reporting stumbling. and power curve issues.. you know that stumble around 4500 rpm.. so now Kia and Hyundai have been replacing the map sensor from the 2.0 turbo.. its about 40 buck on Ebay 70 at the parts counter.. if you are having problems with a smooth power curve this should clear it rite up.. im posting a link a further discussion on this topic you can follow.. every one that's installed this update has had good results.. the second update is a 60 dollar Ebay Mazda speed lip that goes amazing with the Forte turbo cars.. its dirt cheap bolts rite up.. give the car a nice update..

Ok. I need to replace some screws on the intercooler, add gasket maker, and grease the bov. Might as well replace both.

Any pictures of the lip on a car?
