its super easy if you take out the battery to install it.

I think you need a 10mm for the bracket on it.

Oh and get a bypass valve

I just did my Friends Aem Cai..pretty much easy installation..The Only problem i had were the rubber mounts..You Need a 13mm socket and 10mm socket and the Torx Screwdriver is supplied to get the mass air sensor off(I didn't notice that and spent two hours trying to find one to buy

I wanna put one on my Automatic ZX3... I have seen pics of it before on an auto..

I might have to "borrow" a fellow jetters AEM CAI at a G2G to see if it will work..

Iceman The Zx3 I installed the aem cai was on a automatic tranny..Very noticable gain especially in RPM'S...
Went from shifting at 5500 rpm's to shifrting at 6500 rpm's..A Must for Auto Tranny Racers..

AEM's second version of their CAI will work on Automatics as well as Manuals.

I am getting rid of my bypass valve.
