Anyone know a good installer in this area? I'm looking to get a CAI installed.

Thanks!

Why don't you install it yourself? Or ask a buddy who's semi-mechanically inclined install it and offer him a few beers.
I haven't installed one on a protege, but from what i understand, it is fairly straight forward. Remove factory intake components, replace with Cold air intake, maybe an hour tops. Good luck!!!

Its a 06 3s 2.3L. I read through the installation instructions and it says I have to get the car up on jacks and remove the wheel. More than I trust myself or one of my buddies to do. My dad could probably do it at his place but he builds older cars, dont know how comforatble he'd be with his one.

If you dad builds older cars, I'm sure he'd have no problem installing it on your car because I'm sure he is mechanical. Ask him. I think you only need the wheel off foreasy of installation and accesibility.
