Put a filter/block where if anyone ever writes a preselected term like CAI, Cold Air, Intake, etc. and if the poster tries to use any of these terms, the thread will be denied...

Maybe "I'm dumb and can't use the search function" might be slightly more correct but just as demeaning.

That may work...Or have a pop-up that reads,

"To complete post, please change password with your eyes closed, then log out..."

None they all suck!

Your best bet is to pull off of all that scrap going to the throttle body and leave it be, don't worry about the sensors, they aren't needed! Open throttle body is the best performance mod you can do. You will be running 11's all day long.
