This is a 4" to 3-1/2" CAI that I built for a board member, but he hasn't replied back, so I'm putting it up for sale. I know you can build your own for $80-$90, but this is for the guys that either don't have the time to build their own, or don't want to tackle such a project for whatever reason. It starts off at 4" at the TB, and then is 3-1/2" the rest of the way. I use rubber bends, a silicone coupling between the MAF and the filter, and stainless steel clamps.

The price is $175 shipped with a K+N filter, and $150 shipped without the filter, for those of you who may already have your own, since the CAI's use stock size filters. I do accept paypal. A few board members here already have one of my CAI's, and are pleased with them, so I do have positive feedback for the few I've built.

The pics below show the first one I built, and the polished alum. tubing has some scratches in it. The one I'm selling is brand new, has just been built, and is guaranteed to be scratch free. lol

So, here's the pics:

Much better flow and a slight improvement in gas mileage. I don't have my TBSS tuned yet but that will be done very soon.

As of right now, the CAI is now sold again to the original buyer. Once I receive his paypal, I will post it up as 100% sold. :)

Yes, in the rubber 45° bend, on the backside, facing the motor. I wanted to let you do it, just in case you wanted to put it somewhere else. Just use a drill bit slightly smaller in diameter than the plastic tube itself, and you will have a secure, snug fit. ;) Here is how I have mine mounted:

I'm sorry man, I completely would have if you had asked, but it's really my fault for mot telling you in the first place. If you'd like, you can ship that one back, and I'll ship you one out that's predrilled. It really is a VERY easy procedure though. Just get the appropriate drill bit, mark the spot where you want it, and drill. It takes like 2 seconds to go through, literally. lol

hahah. Its all good bro. Tabs tellin me to quit bein a wuss and "put a damn hole in it already" bwahahah. It went together so perfect! She loves how it looks in there. I'm going to get out today and find the right drill bit for it and give this a try. Any special place that I need to put this hole? I know on the bend, but does it matter if high/low/middle?

Tahde + Drill = Bound to screw something up. lol j/k

Everyone needs at least one uni-bit... Even people that are not good with drills.

On the backside of the bend, in the dead middle. ;)

The uni bits are awesome...I have 5 of various sizes and they are great! At $80-$100 each for real good ones, they do get expensive though...Sears, Specialty Tool Shops, Saw Shops, Mac Tools, Cornwell, Matco, etc. all have them!
