Ok, I got the k&n yesterday. I am likely going to make a box as bonnevillemac suggested. However, I may route the intake and filter in the fender space permitting.

If I go with the airbox, I will fabricate a ram air scope underneath the car and plumb that to the box.

I will get a pic asap!!!!

So all you did was wrap you stock box, accordian tube and headers?

EDIT: Never mind .. looked @ your cardomain site.. wat did you use for insulation?

I got it at a speed shop that is no longer in business. It was only 9 bucks!!! I think they could be had anywhere thought I do not know the price. If you like I can measure mine for you.

Ok, here is my heat shield-airbox that I made out of plexiglass and aluminum. I found that the fan would blow right on the filter! Not anymore. I made a scoop in the front valance that pulls cool air to the filter in the box. Its not a ram air box, but it will help usher some cooler air near the filter. The car runs noticably better, or so it seems.
