Yes, and just like he said, it creates turbulence, the last thing an N/A engine needs.

Where is a good place to get a flexible reducer ?

That'd be neat, iff all the info were accurate. For example, my IAT is NOT in my airbox. It'* in the air tube....

It also doesn't answer the question of where to get the reducer. The Kit, yes, just the reducer? No...

Just nitpicking.....

Why doesn't anyone use ZZP/Intense tubing and either do a FWI or a CAI? I didn't like the idea of using a 3" ID for a intake tube. I used less then a 1' of ZZP tubing and a 4"/9" *&B filter then built a CAI box around it that is totally sealed from the engine bay.

Cost:

$55 - 4"/9" *&B Filter
$20 - 3.5"/4" Coupler
Free - 3"x4" aluminum tubing (2)
$11 - ZZP 4" tubing
$20 - T-bolt clamps (5)
$10 - Reflex
$25 - 2'x4' 1/4" Lexin
$5 - 1/8" foam
----------------------------
$146 - TOTAL

It may seem high to some but I'm willing to bet that my CAI is one of the best if not the best in performance and looks on a Bonne.

i said i cut the acordian part out of the rubber acordian. there is only 1" on the insite part and 2" left on the outside part. the exaust pipe buts right up to the tb. the rubber just holds it together. for the cooling effect of the insolation idea i was thinking of wrapping it with some screen and packing it with dry ice when i feel the need to. like we do on the derby car. if i don't do that i was thinking of using that new metalic bubble wrap that they use on duct work. i wrapped the exaust on my honda with fiberglass tape and that worked really well. maybe i'll do the same on the bonnie.
