tymar install question

the DIY thread says to disconnect the batteries for an hour or more. Why do you need to do this? I assume this is to reset something on the computer but I dont know why you would need to.

welcome to the forum. its a good idea to disconnect because your working right there. dont want to accidently arc the battery, can cause problems withe the ol electrical grid.

I forget the reason now, but the one batt cable was in the way when taking the top off the batt box so it had to come off.

I finished the instal today, everything went perfect and only took about 20 minutes. I have a friend that installed a 4" stainless exhaust and it came with extra pipe for a long bed so he cut me a 3" section for my intake. It seems to run a little better and sounds better too. Definitely beats spending $200+ on a name brand.

Sweet! Yeah I had a difficult time making a decision on the tymar or the AFE stage 2. Well I can honestly say I made the right decision for me The other bonus is you don't have to clean and re-oil the filter. I have seen them before and they always seem to look dirty and that just doesn give me a warm fuzzy feeling!

Has anyone done the tymar and noticed an oil leak? I did coming from the valley under the turbo so I changed back to stock intake and the leak stopped but I was told that the tymar might be more restrictive than the stock element because when the stocker gets too dirty the same thing happens(oil leak) because of restriction. anyone know for sure?

Any chance you might have had a bit of a leak from the intake tube, and the leak was just residue from the ccv?

I don't think so cause all my clamps were tight and no oil from the bottom of my tubes to show ccv leakage it seems kinda weird I would like to put my tymar back on but want to figure this out first. I've actually switched back and forth twice and same thing has happend but what I did notice with the tymar when I drove hard thats when i noticed the leak, and stock I don't

That's really strange, I don't really know the cause of that one, but if you do a good cleanup on it and try again, you might be able to at least find the actual location of the leak, and work from there.
