Hey guys, i just got my srt intake in the mail today, thanks to krs for the sale. So i just opened the box around 10, and started goin at it, after about an 1hr and 15min i had everything good to go. Went out for a drive and loved the sound. :) Very nice deep sound at WOT. Very easy install in my opinion, i was intimidated by the soldering part, but after looking at the wiring diagram it all made sense.
Heres a couple of pics with the intake and mazzuri headers. Enjoy!

performance wise it was pretty impressive compared to stock. Really felt it on the low end side. just cruisin at 20mph, then hittin wot it'll really start going. Im sure you'll love the sound ;) I'll post a video in a couple of days with drivebys, in car and outside. let you be the judge of it. high end wise didn't seem to accel as fast as i wanted, but still got up there.

Sound like your ecu is dumping to much fuel into the combustion chamber (running rich) and causing your enigine to bog down. Are you running 02 sims?
This problem may fix itself by your pmc adapting to the change of air coming in and going out of the engine, but it could take a couple days of driving. If it doesn't you may need to buy a piggyback and an a/f monitor.
