    Yeah, my selection of bits is pretty limited. So I used a file and drill bit combo to get a perfect fit.

    Almost forgot, make sure you index the sensor when it's inserted in the tube. The idea is to let the orange sensor get clean air and not get obstruted air by the plastic 'U' which surrounds the sensor. Does that make sense?

    Hey Andy can you post some pics of that mud flap you used to block off the CAI? I think that really cleans things up. I'm thinking about doing that sometime.

    Thanks

    Awesome. How did you attach the mudflap to the fender?

    Thanks

    i was building mine today and had a question- i'm almost done all i need is the right rubber boot ( fernco ) that fits over the 4" PVC and the stock Throttle Body

    anyone know what size to get for that???

    i tried using the 4" X 3" one and the 3" side was too big...

    I just got the 4" x 2" and it looks like it's going to be too small.... am i going to have to get the one that is 3" all the way across, the straight one?? or... am am i just
    :bang:

    Just tighten the 3" end over the TB so that it fits tight. It seems like it's going to be too big but just keep tightening and it works perfect. I got my MAF adapter off ebay, but I don't see one on there now. www.uprproducts.com has one too.

    LOL- i guess i'm going to have to back to Home Depot to get the 3"er back :D

    LOL I guess i could have tried tightening it a bit

    thanks for the Help GTJake

    I just got done painting mine, it's going to be silver like Oinks (above...somewhere...)

    i'll take a look at the adapter- thanks again

    Its held in place with one screw, you can see it in the last pic on that link....there is a slot up next to the headlight that it slides behind, it holds that corner in place...

    make a cardboard template...then when you have the fit as you like, transfer it to whatever you use....its a funky one to cut and fit around all the stuff...but the end product looks much better....

    what did you guys use to cut the fender to make the filter fit in there? did you paint over the cut part so its not raw metal showing?

    i was gonna use a dremel but my dad was upstairs sleeping so i didnt want to make a ton of noise in the garage, so i used tin-snips....the cut was kinda jagged(sp?) but it worked fine...i actually cut more off then i needed...currently its just covered in electical tape to cover the bare metal but once i get some time(winter break from school) im gonna get in there sand it all nice and use some touch up paint....and then make a "cover" like RIO to make it look real OEM
