I will model the stock air box when I get ours this weekend, and the TB shouldn't be too hard.

yeah I was just using the stock air box as the inlet size of the tubing. When I do my conversation I'm keeping the stock air box (gutted) with a green performance filter.

Cool and they run @ 12V, Eh? Very small amp load. I bet you could waffle like 30 of them together and make one awesome looking square CAI pipe to the fenderwell.

One thing I woudl really like to see is with and with out the MAF screen. I also think this information woudl be good in a write up showing real scientific evidence showing things liek the turnaroator is junk, better to run with a MAF screen, etc.
