Has anyone ever replaced an air intake on their own before? Iíd like to give it a shot being as my mechanic is closed and Iím desperately bored (and I need a new air intake obviously;)  )
Iím looking to buy a short ram intake as itís quieter than a cold air intake but any advice on the 2 n wud I need any special tools? Thanks in advance!
Never did one but looks pretty straight forward.
Glad you found this thread OK.  :)

Nope . Vehicle repairs were completed yesterday at a cost of $1500. I'm only paying 10%. It's my work vehicle.
Pics of the trampoline?
That's good to hear, yes the trampoline.

   Is there really something to see with that old gilapp?

You're lucky you got a trampoline before the rush. Try finding one now...

I actually got one a few weeks ago. All my neighbors want to get one and they can't find any anywhere.
I've had bad experience with Advance Auto Parts batteries. Third one to go bad on me within the first year. Two different cars.
Ouch.
Advance Auto Parts tested the battery and alternator etc and say that it's good. They claim there must be something draining the battery. It last about a day before it dies. The only thing I have plugged in is a dash cam. I do have an actuator for one of the A/C vents that I need to get around to replacing (I think it's the one behind the dashboard that's pretty hard to get to), maybe that's doing funny stuff to it? But that shouldn't be doing anything when the car is off.

I also have a heated seat that doesn't turn on, when you press the button to turn it on, it just turns right off. I once tried reaching under the seat and pushing all the wires in the connectors better, and it worked for a little bit. Tried it again and it didn't help anymore.

Have not used RockAuto in sometime. They just beat Amazon, Pepboys and Advance for Wagner pads and rotors.

Came in one day. Brake job was a piece of cake. Not one issue. Didn't even have to back off the emergency brake adjuster. Car 7 years old, 99k miles and first time for rear brakes.

I'm surprised RockAuto wasn't boycotted yet by political tools like Media Matters.

Check for any loose parts along the seat, check if it's mounted down to the car.  Figit alrond
