In Reply to: Those who have Dinan CAI ...or any other intake... posted by DF on October 08, 2000 at 02:25:16:

That sensor is what is causing my coolant level low warning that I'm getting now that the weather is COLD. My installer gave me two options and I think I might have went with the wrong option while installing my Jim C euro HFM kit. Bob W says.. It could be that with the cooler weather your inside temperature required that some warm air was needed which caused the coolant to be circulated through the heater core. Being that during the summer the heater core wasn't circulating coolant and now it may have not been full which required some of the coolant to take up that missing void.
Now if that sensor actually senses the temp, and sends warm air into the heater core, than that might be the cause of my warning. Because the way it's hooked up.. I don't think it's working! I'll have to look into this further.

I just got my Dinan CAI and I noticed that it does not accomodate the sensor that is pluged into the factory airbox. What do I do about fitting it in? What have you guys done to incorporate it? I'm hesitant to keeping such a beautiful piece of work, the intake that is. I'm very curious. Mine is a 1995 M3, so any of ytou guys with these afermarket intakes, I'd like to here what you did. Thanks.
