Yup I moved the horn after Damemorder told me about the 4 mounts. Park Ave'* have 4 horns, we have 2, on the front mounts. My drivers side horn is now behind the washer bottle, and it does give some room.

Me thinks i'm gonna make a page with lots of info soon, so avoid this.

anyhew, how in the world did you people use 3 inch couplers? i used a 3.5 to 3 reducer and BARELY got it to fit on! it took me and theJMFC about 15 minutes of pushing and pulling as hard as we could to get the dumb thing on the throttle body!

anyway, I'm really happy with mine. I didn't use an aluminum pipe (bought a u-bend on ebay, thought it was going to be aluminum, forgot to specify at the end of the auction, and got aluminized steel), but it worked out great! I got to pick my own custom angle, to put the filter right where I wanted it. I'll have to take some pics for you guys... it'* not done, mind you (need to make a box), but I took the insulation that was around the PCM and cut it up so it would form a psuedo box... and it seems to work okay. After heating the car up, there'* a noticable temperature difference between the 'hot' and 'cold' side of the insulation. once the weather is warmer, theJMFC and myself will be working on the polycarbonate box.

but I like it a lot

It appears that your CAI'* should actually be called a HAI...Hot Air Induction.

I'd be willing to bet mine is as close to ambient as any CAI in a GP. There'* more to it than you can see from the top. I'm consistently within 5 of ambient outside temps.

guarenteed that mine is not all are HAI. mine is an insulated heatshield and in really close to ambient temps.

anyone with a heatshield is pulling more air and cooler than a stock air box

strange first post for a person with the name WarEagleGTP, no?

anyhew, as many have pointed out, a quick run with a scantool shows that running these HAI'* shows they are CAI'*, and usually keep it w/in a few degrees of ambient...
