Ok...so I am getting my cai..finally! I have been leaning towards the Injen model, but have heard some negative things about it...cuz of the filter. So I have been lookin at the K&N model..would like to hear a few pros and cons on each, or any others... Thanks!

I custom made mine with a filter, a rubber elbow, and a piece of 4" exhaust tubing

For the MAF sensor, i used a piece of flat bar to mount to, and drilled it out to fit snug

if you want CAI... go injen

if you want SRI.... go K&N
Or you can get both for the same price as a reg cold air since the Injen design made it versatile enough to make it either a SRI or CAI depending on weather or if you just feel like have one or the other. I think it was a great and superior design they did with this and if you still feel unsafe with the fact that they did have issues with the filter you can always buy the dryflow filter that AEM makes . But I am pretty sure they resolved their problem with the filter.

Get a stainless steel one. Dissipates heat better. Nothing is better then plastic though.
Actually, stainless gets hotter and stays hotter a lot longer than plastic and aluminum. Stainless doesn't disperse heat well either. Trust me, I studied metallurgy in college and work with the stuff on a daily basis.

If the CAI is close to the engine, plastic or carbon fiber. If it's tucked away from the engine, aluminum. The faster the air rushes in an aluminum tube, the less heat that it holds on to. Plastic and carbon fiber won't hold heat at all, so either way it's a good option.
