Do you just want to add the K&N filter, or a complete CAI system?

I think he'* just talking about buying a cone.

Unless you use a tube to get to colder air, for a n/a system you will do better to just put the drop in filter in the box you have. There is alot of photos here showing various cold air intakes. Your also going to have to bolt down the PCM. I think the best way around this is to buy a system from ZZP or Intense. It'* an item that design isnt critical for your application, so I would go for the cheapest.

Best to use a cold air box. If you just install a cone filter to the intake your sucking in hot engine bay air.
