It was night out, a hot humid night of south florida. I was on my way home speeding from work, As i turning into my development i downshifted by accident and the car jerked. Not but 30 secs after my car started to buck back and forth :shocked: i thought i might be in the wrong gear because i was not getting any power so i switched out and went back into 1st, not luck then my car completely turned off. I tired to start it it rev'd up then dropped again only to die on me a second time. So i pulled over popped the hood to find out that the top of my bomz racing cai had come loose from the maf sensor and was sucking in hot air which was making my car stall out. Anyways i just wanted to get some feedback is anyone having any problems with the Bomz racing CAI not staying together i have tighten this piece up at least 3 times it seems everytime i drive my car hard it seems to fall off.

Cheap CAI = Bad Results. Should've gone AEM or Injen. I'm sorry to hear about the problem though. Hopefully it can be fixed.

Yeah I had the same problems with mine..... you just have to play arround with it so that there is enough play in the piping after the MAF that it won't come apart when jerked arround. Also get some better clamps than what came with the kit that will make a big difference too.

Yeah I had the same problem with mine. I bought better clamps from auto-zone and it held for a few days, but after the 6th or 7th time I just tore the intake off and put a K&N filter after my MAF. From experience, you will not notice a difference in performance from a RAM setup as opposed to Bomz CAI setup. Resetting your ECU gets old and a filter attached to the MAF won't come off so it will save you a headache or two. Just my two cents.

It had nothing to do with sucking hot air, it had to do with the MAF not being connected properly after in became disconnected. It will stall out an engine every time.

Buy some motor mounts, that will get rid of the engine bouncing around in there.
i had the exact same problem as you man, i payed a guy to install my intake, and he lost the clip that holds on the MAF. Since then I went to the junkyard and stole one off of an elantra, but the MAF still won't stay on there right. It's gets loose every couple days, the car bucks, cuts off, and i pop the hood, wiggle the MAF and push it on tight and then the car runs fine.

thats not safe dude...imagine you're on the highway and a SEMI going 75 mph is a quarter of a mile behind you and your car dies...that would = you dying. sells that bombz shiz....get a aos from www.speedstate.com if you want something cheap.
