dc sports cai

  1. Eclipse Performance
    I'm ready to bite the bullet on my first major modification, the DC Sports CAI4006. Unfortunately for me, I've got an 09 with foglights and apparently it means I'm bound for clearance issues. Browsing here and on Amazon comments, it seems a simple solution is to add an elbow between the intake...

    DC Sports Cold Air Intake Pretty self-explanatory. This fits the 4G69 (06-08,5MT). I know there's a difference in the 09+, but I can't remember what's relevant to that. It came off my 06 GS MT. I'm also including the MAF sensor, which to my knowledge still works, as well as a AEM water sock...
  3. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    Finally broke down and bought a CAI. This wasn't my first CAI install, so I kinda already knew the ins and outs of what I needed to do. It wasn't any more complex than I expected. Just take your time and look where everything is. You can technically do it without taking off the wheel, but you...
  4. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    So I recently ordered a DC Sports CAI and I'm wating for it to arrive. I have heard things about needed to do a tune to fully utilize the new intake, but have heard other things contradicting that saying "The ECU will learn to use the higher amount of air" so Im not sure what to do. Do I need to...

    I bought my Eclipse about a year ago but I've just now gotten into modding it. I do have the oh-so famous dc sports CAI though and a set of depo black bezel tails on the way :) Next is the RRE UDP
  6. Eclipse Performance
    I just installed my DC Sports CAI today on my 06 eclipse gs. I put it all together right and turned it on, after 5 minutes of idling the check engine soon light came on, i paid no mind to it and did as everyone says, reset the ecu. i waited about 15 minutes to reconnect the battery then turned...
  7. Part Reviews/Opinions
    I ordered a DC Sports CAI for my 06 Eclipse GS earlier in the week and they've just now contacted me to tell me they've run out of stock, and the manufacture has as well. They gave me a quote of late October when they'll have more in stock, i was wondering if i should just wait on it or try and...
  8. Problem Reports
    Hi Guys, So I was driving through basically a hurricane yesterday is my 07 GS with a DC Sports CAI. It's relatively well shielded I thought (Filter behind the fog light) and I do have that AEM "Hydroguard" prefilter sock on it. That being said, I was on the highway (traffic moving about 60...
  9. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    First off, I'm a long time lurker and searched all over for others with this problem and couldn't find anything. I have a 2007 GS and I just installed a DC sports CAI and now my engine is heating up dangerously hot after a few test drives. the temp gauge will hang just above the middle and...
  10. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    I just wanted to put a word of warning (even though it's been beaten to death) about using a CAI on these cars. I have the DC Sports CAI + K&N filter wrap on my GS and was driving in some extremely heavy rain this evening. By the time I had made it to the other side of the storm, and traffic...
  11. Problem Reports
    So today right before I was leaving my house to go to work a huge thunderstorm rolled into town. It down poured like crazy and I decided to leave. My roads were already flooded and I'd did my best to avoid the puddles which were avoid ready very deep. I have avoid ready DC sports Cai and the...
  12. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    Does anyone know the exact hydroshield to use with DC Sports CAI for a GS? I've done some poking around for it but all the answers aren't really conclusive, any help would be greatly appreciated.
  13. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    What has been done on the DC Sports CAI install with fog lights? The fitment is spot on except the filter does not fit with fog lights. Before I start cutting the intake I wanted to find out what has been done already. I have looked around and "used the search" and have not found actual photos...

  15. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    Hello all, I'm pretty new to modding my car but I was hoping someone may be able to answer this question for me since searching really gave me no answers. I'm looking at buying the DC Sports CAI for a 2008 as the only one that "fits" a 2012 that I've found is the AEM CAI. Basically I'm just...
  16. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    Before I begin, I did search but could not find anything. I have a 07 eclipse gs MT. I bought a dc sports cai(cai4006) and went to install it on my eclipse. Everything installed perfectly except for the MAF sensor, the holes on the pipe and the holes on the MAF sensor do not line up. Has anyone...

    I'm looking for a decent SRI, I have a DC sports CAI and I hit a puddle and my car started throwing a misfire on cyl 4. It left a bad taste in my mouth. Anyway, I am looking to buy or trade for an SRI. Preferably an AEM SRI or the Injen SRI/CAI.
  20. Automotive For Sale/Wanted
    Pretty much brand new. Only 450 miles on it. Installed it and bought a new car soon after. I cut it in half and made a SRI. It can be switched between the two just by coupling them together. Sounds great $135 shipped lower 48
