That'* What I got, couple others do to, The box does need to be cut up to make fit, takes some time but not to bad. I like it and the Plexi top looks nice, does get dirty fast though.

I know Rogue has the SLP box and seen it in person and fits pretty good. I'd recomend that setup too.

I'm guessing most GP'* CAI will/can fit with some creative thinking such as MSP ect. or be real creative and make your own like 2000silverbullet.

Unfortunatly you need a spot to put the PCM on the 2000+cars. My 97 has a plastic PCM boxc that came with it from the factory, you could probably get one from a dealership and use wireties to make it work.

Very nice. I just don't have the time or the inclination to go chasing around trying to buy pieces and parts and then making them work.
I'm waiting for the system that is specifically designed to fit our cars.

You will be waiting for a while. All of us with CAI have had to adapt something from the GP market. There are plenty of guys here who have done an open cone type of things and silverbullet seems to have the best one of those but nothing production wise is available for us.

Somehow, I was under the impression that one was being designed and built specifally for the 2000 and up cars. I'm not lazy but I have so much on my plate that I'd rather pay someone who has gone through the steps to do it right.

The great thing about the 2000+ Bonnes, because it doesn't have a water bottle in the way, it that you can go straight in.
I would recommend simply getting a big cone and a straight pipe (no pipe at all) with a rubber connector like I did. Much better flow.
