Question CAI ?

Okay, well I was looking into an aFe Stage 2 CAI.

I was reading up on installation and I read somewhere that I have to remove the 02 sensor...

This to me sounds absurd, but I just want to make sure.

Thanks ahead of time.

Save your money and do the air box mod with a TTAB pipe...you'll get more power

Where do I buy a TTAB pipe and which one actually sounds better?

I think I'm going to go for a Dejon CAI, because I plan on buying a BOV set up from them and their intakes are fairly cheap ($151 w/shipping) I just want to make sure if I need to remove an O2 Sensor or not.

I'm still debating, I'm really tempted on the mod box though. But ya thanks for your help! You're always one of the firsts to help me out! I really appreciate it.

Also, has anyone heard anything bad about this website?

The problem with those CAI is that you are sucking hot air from the engine that's why you should stick with the air box mod and TTAB and K&N drop in.
Here is mine:

See, in this photo it show the set up of the BOV (First Picture) and on the website DEJON | Powerhouse it says that it would come in contact with a stock air box.

This is basically the setup I want, but do I need to buy an aftermarket UIP-PTB (Second Picture) or is there a way I could save money?

Are you running stock boost? because if you do I believe is an overkill to have one of those BOV... and I was told is better for the turbo to have the BOV as close as you can to the turbo and on the hot side

You will probably loose some HP sucking in the hot air from the engine compartment. Is you insist on changing it at least consider using something like a Airaid intake that seals against the underhood but still uses a cone filter. DO NOT FALL PREY TO ADVERTISING! JUST BECAUSE IT ALL MATCHES DOES NOT MEAN IT WORKS BETTER! I will never understand why people throw money at something just to go slower.
