A few pics/questions/statements

First pic is my DIY intake First of all let me say this is a P.I.T.A. to get into place on an e99, had to shift the battery and relocate a couple relays to get this thing in place. An now the questions for it... So I had the batteries disconnected when i did this so the pcm would reset or whatever, would this effect the way it drives when I connected them and started driving it again? Doesn't it hafta re-learn your driving habits or something? It seems to drive different... Oh yeah, it seems a bit louder too, not just the WOOOSH at higher rpms, but even just on start-up and accelerating it seems to have much more injector noise... idk. A 3rd thing, how many of ya'll run a pre-filter, and those who do where can I get them? I'm not doing a lot of harsh driving soon, so i'm not too worried, but i figure a lil extra insurance wont hurt.

2nd pic is my stock gpr i took off and took cut appart when I did my stancor mod... man this thing was FRIED! just plain crispy in there If the stancor ever goes out I'll take that hoss apart and post pics too

3rd pic, and I know I'm probably gonna sound like a total idjit, but wtf is this? It was up under the dash and I saw it while looking for my IDM, which I found out was mounted in the fenderwell.... I'm guessing PCM? Somebody please edjumacate me.

Thanks in advance,
Jason

I dont know anything about the "relearning" stuff, but I do know that when I mod my truck, I start listening harder and trying to hear problems. If I hear one little noise the AC is off and the radio is off and I'm listening. My guess is that its in your head. Intake looks good!

I'd have to agree, I think the e99 is quieter... I just got an e 99 truck a few days ago, and parked next to my 2000 F350, the idle chatter of the 2000 is louder.



I have the DIY intake on my 2000, and the parts to do it to the '99 in it's back seat... no pre-filter tho... I put in a new one once a year need it or not, my buddy is a cheapazz and we put one of my old ones on his newest truck. Trust me, it was loads better than the one we took out...

OK, guess I have to upgrade injectors to make mine louder....

And wtf, was that truck parked running in front of a coal conveyor? That filter is sickening!

Edit: and I kinda of answered my e99 quieter question by myself earlier, I parked next to a buddy of mine's uncle's truck, when he started his truck up it had way more bark than my e99

Ha ok, I figured as much, but thank you for confiming my guess. I hope I can find a pcm upgrade for a reasonable buck now.... stupid e99 pcm


Edit: your truck still makes me sad that I dont have such a purdy ride, and where's the pics with the new mirrors and whatnot?! lol

Your air filter would have been a lot easier if you had used a 45* pipe instead of a striaght one, the 99.5+ trucks already have more of a bend in the intake tube and use a straight tube, e99's fit perfect with a bent pipe.
Yeah the factory GPR's don't do too well.
as already said, yep, that's your PCM.

Yeah, of course I only found this out after FINALLY finding some pictures of an e99 DIY intake oh well, it fits and im happy. Might be trading for another e99 so this might come in handy then lol
