    First off you have an injen CAI so you did yourself a favor (Just kidding)
    But yeah your battery was on its way out, inverter did nothing special.
    Mine needs to be updated.

    wait now that I actually read the other replies, I guess it can be your CAI, I mean the injen is made of metal.

    looks like the CAI rubbed through it- but that battery was on it's way out anyway. You got a long time out of it.

    i'm no mechanic, but i still dont understand how a CAI rubbing against the battery would cause it to errupt battery acid??

    oh well, i got a new battery and now theres a one inch gap between the battery and the CAI.

    My old GTA used to take exactly 4 years to kill a battery, and it would always eat through the positive post. That's an electrical problem. If it leaks from the side, I'd guess it's more likely a physical defect or rubbing. Maybe it was just the pressure from pushing against the CAI from stopping, turning, etc. that cracked the side.
