    Hi Scotty, love your video's wish there were more guys like you in the world. I have a 2006 Chevy Malibu, 2.2 ecotec, 78k miles. The car has no acceleration, when i give it gas the RPM's race up and down. Was told it was the catalytic converter from the place I got my car from but they told me all they did was read the codes. So after I got them tested at auto parts store i got P0101,P0171,P0300,P0420. Saw no codes saying catalytic converter, do you think they are right? Or do you think they are trying to rip me off? Thank you if you see this!!

    Earlier this year, I was at my local Ford dealership and the parts guys related this story. They told me that some customer leaned his mustang engine out so much with a cold air intake that he burned the motor out.

    Hi Scotty! Peter from Canada here. Want to ask you about royal purple oil. I have used it in my 2007 civic Si and noticed that my engine was sounding clacky noise. When I replaced oil back to Mobil 1 the noise went away. I used 5w30 on both oils. What gives? Thanks eh!

    If your car lurches when you get on/off the gas, check for a crack in the accordion like tube between the air flow sensor and the intake manifold. The crack can open/close as the engine rocks.

    Hey Scotty I really appreciate your advice im glad I ran into this video in particular because I see alot of ppl in the 10th gen Civic community buying these cold air intakes and I was almost gonna follow. I did have a question though, whats your opinion on strut bars? Better handling? Just looking for cheap performance mods for my new civic coupe. Any advice id appreciate. Thanks Scotty!

    Some cars manufacturers actually sell cold air intakes right at the dealership for select cars, even the second gen chevy cruze which is a regular slow car, so clearly they are harmless!

    Why they keep calling that junk *COLD AIR* intake is still a mystery to me.. It replaces the original *COLD* air intake that is pulling air from the fender or front of the car only to suck in hot air from under the hood, especially if it's routed somewhere near the exhaust manifold.. Just stupid xD.

    those "cold air intake" is actually not cold air intake..... most of the time they are SHORT RAM intakes unless it has a box that insulates it from the hot engine bay temperatures.... so in other words, you just removed your factory air box and replaced it with another air cleaner box..... you know, that is a mental issue..... you do the same thing expecting a different result.
