Lesson Learned Tonight

Injen Intake
Well folks a lesson was learned tonight, if you plan on going to the drag strip make sure it is actually opened.  A few of us were planning on going to the strip tonight but it turned out when we got there it was closed.  I spent the afternoon checking my fluid levels, making sure my brake calipers were torqued down correctly and adjusting air pressure in my tires.  One interesting thing that a friend and I decided to do was remove my driver side fog light.  The light sits directly in front of my intake filter (Injen Intake to the right)

It actually did effect my fuel trim levels (long term).  I usually run at around -3% to -5% however by removing the fog light and allowing more air into the filter the fuel trims seemed to lean out, no surprise there.  Current fuel trim levels are around -1% to 3.5%.  I'll continue to monitor the fuel trims as the computer continues to adjust for it.

Clearly this isn't something that you want to do everyday.  Especially since rain would be forced straight into the filter, not to mention other things would be directly hitting the filter such as rocks and bugs.

I'll take some pictures over the weekend and post them.
