first thing is to take off the intake and make sure that something is not cuaght in the throttle body. If the piece did go past the throttle body next thing is to take off the plenum. Also, if it was just dirt and grimes that got it check your O2 sensor that located right after the filter. If its dirty your car will stall.

The shitty bypass filter for the AEM CAI would break and people had their cars stall due to pieces from the bypass going into the intake.

made an amendment to previous post. Be careful of these things. How big was the hole in the filter?

A horror story a CL member told was that his car stalled out while doing 85mph due to pieces from the AEM bypass filter going into the throttle body.

The old filter is OLD and dirty and I just get my replacement filter today. I think the sucking power is too great on the OLD filter that detroyed the filter. The size is about between the size of a dime and nickel. That why I figure some of the filter element must have sucked into the engine that cause the stall. I hope it just stuck in the throttle body...

Thank God :D now everything is ok now. I found out today that a small piece of the filter got stuck inside the air flow sensor! I slowly took that out and everything's ok.

Anyway, have you taken your car to the body shop yet? I found out that it is a one-piece with the bumper cover.

I'll run mine by B&S this week or weekend and get an estimate. BTW, do you know if they paint the bumpers there or do they order them pre-painted?

Glad your trouble was minor! =D>
They paint the bumper on mine, also the side fender got blend in too. Total cost on mine was about $2800 and that includes new bumper, muffler and center muffler.
