Heres my CAI, built it using some free parts from a friend, one rubber elbow and a bunch of clamps! There are no real tight spots or sharp bends....it looks like the kit was made for the car! I figured it would look crappy, but I impressed myself.

Nice install! Looks good. Did you cut the flange off of the MAF?

I'm wondering if you will have problems with the MAF being so close to the TB. Maybe I'm thinking wrong.

Very nice. Forgive me if I'm blind, but where did you put the IAT and vent hoses?
