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.

MAF is cut. I have the flange if anyone wants it to make their own MAF adapter....you could epoxy a pipe to it. If anyone wants it just pm me and pay shipping.

As for the IAT you can see it if you look real close mounted to the back side of the MAF. I cut a hole, notched it snd the IAT sensor goes in like it was a factory location, does not affect flow or the maf reading at all.

Looks good! Having the MAF and IAT as close to the TB as possible is a bonus too.

Nice, I on the other hand were thinking on adding a PCV Grommet to the pipe to make it work, What do you all think? I'll let you all know how it goes.

PS I should have the parts in as soon as Friday.
Check out my thread

What kind of pipe kit did you use? Or is the pipe custom fabricated?

What about the 3 hoses that kind of tap into the factory intake? Did you just plug them or what?
OH DEAR GOD NO! LOL Im replacing mine with all these neat filters. If not, Im adding them in to the pipe. Not sure how Brad did his... but we will soon find out
