    I ordered a bbk cai for my 95 gt mustang. I finally got it and never got around to trying to install it until tonight. I did not even take the ****ing air box off before I had a problem that I can't do nothing about atm. Well there is a electronic sensor plugged or should i say screwed into the stock rubber hose. Now the bkk has a hole for this sensor, however the sensor does not fit in this thing tightly, it sits there lose and if i hit a bump in the road with it, it would fall out. So pissed off i put the car back together and threw the bbk **** back into the box. The installation directions were off of summit and didn't help worth 2 ****s. So here is a picture of what I am talking about and someone who installed this kit on their car please fill me in. ( Sorry for the language not in a good mood)

    try this man. on the stock one you see how it screws in rite? try takin out the piece it screws into, it looks like its just screwed into the stock one, try takin the whole assembaly out and puting into the bbk, looks like you m ight need to screw some holes for it to work, but it mite be worth a try

    That BBK cai should have a threaded bung for the ACT sensor. That's the way my former MAC cai was set up. I'd say get rid of that Big Bunch of Krap and get a refund.

    Calm down. Its not the end of the world. You can probably get a firewall grommet from the parts store OR a small piece of rubber hose to take up the slack. It SHOULD have came with a grommet of some sort. There really isn't much to the install. It should take you about 15-20 minutes to throw in really...

    I just imstalled that same intake on my 94 GT. There is a rubber gromet that comes with the CAI. It goes in that hole to hold the sensor in. I can get a pic of it tomorrow for you.
