I would suggest that you use the search, it'* up there next to the FAQ and type in "intake" and it'll give you a lot of articles and ideas, or just go over to the next page below vvvvvvv (page 2) and I'm sure there'* a thread with an intake installation and build

There are countless threads about this, and some recent ones as well. You'll definitely be able to find something using the search. Go from there first, and then if there are more questions don't be afraid to ask.

Haro, I had some plexi a while back for my CAI on the SSE. I never got around to making it for obvious reasons. I was thinking Lexan would be better...

teh heat shield in that picture is already gone. it was thin plexi and wasn't worth a damn. I have a new one at my parents house i'm installing on sunday. Its about 1/4" thick i think. should hold up well. i'll have pics up sometime next week.

I'm using 1/8" Acrylic for mine. It held up for over a year, then I recently reinforced it with a reflective tape. It'* back in fine form again.
