Does the air intake by Toucan have a place for the air temp sensor on it?
I heard they don't.

Yeah I heard that you have to get a computer download so the oxygen sensors can recognize the change. If you dont it will just regulate the amount of air coming in no matter what you have on. A BMW mechanic told me that. Congrats on your Ti. I had mine when I was 18 and now Im 25 still purrs like a kitten, I dont think Ill ever sell it. Im buying me a daily driver car.

yeah i have heard that 2, my check engine light has NOT come on or anything since i installed though. my friend has a Vtec accord and when he installed his intake his check engine light came on and it had somethign to do with his oxygen sensors. my dad has a OBD II code reader so if mine does come on we can see whats wrong with it.
