    They offer the same power. The CAI is more at risk of hydrolocking, but you have to really be DEEP in a CX-7 to do so. I would do SRI, but we were the first CX-7 to actually have that CAI, and my wife did the install for that, and the TMIC (I documented). Get those, and then save pennies for a VersaTuner and get an eTune to really nail down the power.

    FYI @CorkSport - Derrick might have a set of the now discontinued of RMM inserts for CX-7 for like $40 or so. I would snag those up.

    Yup

    If you want to DIY, bake em in the oven for 10 minutes at 200 degrees. Then pull apart after prying up on the tabs. If no dice, another 5, try again.

    Once apart, set clear lense upright, and don't touch the insides of it. Scrub the chrome part up with a 3m scruff pad, prime, paint. Once dry, bake lense and light for 10 minutes at 200, and press the lense back on, ensure all tabs are in place. Feel free to add some RTV around the seam and let dry, reinstall and done.

    Thanks for that was there any problem with headlight alignment once you got it back on?

    They are 100% factory. I did not modify anything. But if you want to crack em open, that is how.
