Well I got a weekly email from Jegs and saw that there was a universal CAI kit as one of the featured items. Heres the link:

I am personally going to wait for the Draxas Intake since i have a Gen IV, but i thought this might help some of the earlier Gen guys.

that's rediculous. go to autozone and buy some plastic air duct tubing and a k&n filter. it will cost you $60, but you'll have to paint the tube yourself.

I have the same set up, but my duct as a custom carbon fiber wide open duct that is stretched all the way to the front of my grill, so there is more forced induction and my filter isn't wide open like the filter in the picture to suck in hot engine heat. It has a 360 degree heat shield.

This is ridiculous! Autozone has a plastic adapter that lets you connect a flexible air duct to the intake "hole" in a cone filter. The adapter costs like $5 and the hose is $20 (which is still kind of expensive). Couple this with an S&B or K&N filter for $30 and you've got semi-forced induction my friend (I hope your bull doesn't slurp up too much water though).

Actually my filter has never gotten wet. I have a by-pass filter inbetween the hose and the filter behind the fender wall.

And, those universal adapters at Autozone are crap. They will melt if you engine tempurature reaches 140 degrees. Real easy to do in the summer. Not to mention, it does not exactly fit your MAF. It's crap and that's why it's only $5
