ABS of any type is a bad choice for an intake. It heatsoaks well, and cools slowly. In addtion, the joints are typically disrupting to natural airflow, costing you velocity and natrual flow.
FWI filter placement is superior to anything you can do with a well-shielded CAI simply because the filter is no longer in the hot engine bay.
CAI'* if PROPERLY shielded and FWI'* increase MPG'* and power both.
