    CAI on Shelby z

    I have a 87 Daytona Shelby Z with the factory CAI. I want to look into replacing it with an aftermarket intake. What are the wiring connections that go into the factory plastic box beside the the battery? And what do I need to do with those if I change system?
    Thanks

    That's for the power module if I'm understanding you correctly. You leave that in place and just remove the airbox hoses etc. going to the turbo. You can then take a coupler off of the inlet to the turbo and use a pipe to hopefully get a large air filter somewhere that will get cold air.

    Thanks, that's good info. I may look into doing something like that. Mine is completely stock right now, and a lot of fun to drive, but.. I'm sure I'll be looking into adding some performance mods in the near future.
