So after i installed an air intake in my 2002, i noticed the oil pressure gauge started to slightly jump around. Is this normal after installing a CAI? Im sure it didnt do this prior to the CAI, any other reasons this could happen?

it should be fluctuating a little bit.... it should move up as u get closer to WOT and down when you let go of the throttle ...

Your right, it stabilizes as i hit the gas,But i didnt have this before. Is this due to the CAI?

no idea.... i cant see any reason a CAI would affect oil pressure... if you think about it, the oil pump moves faster as the rpms go up, adding pressure to the system, the CAI shouldn't have anything to do with it...
