Thumbs up Steeda CAI and SCT3 Tune in........

Okay, Okay...

who do I owe? LMAO!

Was it worth the money? HELL YEAH!

The sound, power, feel, its all different now! I cant freakin believe it!

At start up I was nervous, it ran rich and gurgled ALOT when idling down. So I let it run a few mins and adjust....still had a little gurgle in it. So I went and ran the dog out of it. Came back and she idled smooth. Still had a little gurgle in it, but not as bad as when It first started.

I can believe how different the engine and exhaust sounds. Car sounds like it has attitude now!

Can anyone help me with the gurgle? Or is that just the new tune?

Pop the hood and double check the connections.

The black plastic on my Steeda elbow was very slick and I used some sandpaper at three connections.

Gurgle is when RPM's are dropping down to idle...

Not really happening all the time, just when in neutral and revving engine. I have a full tank of 87 and running my 87 tune.

Brenspeed tune East87


I was just reading a few things, and I think Im going outside and play with the tuner. I dont remember having to enter "Steeda" CAI or anything like that. I also didnt get an instruction book with my tuner...

Read also that Im supposed to turn everything off and unplug fuses to anything running? Saw that in the SCT manual online..

Any advice people?
