INTENSE FWI. Get the one for 97, we can install it here later this month. Hands down the best intake for the price.

I have a FWI on the Zilla. It pulls cold air from the fenderwell. Completely isolated from hot engine bay air.

My CAI on the SLEeper is fairly well shielded, and relies on a fresh supply of air around the headlight while the car is in motion, but is not as cool and efficient as the FWI.

You would spend nearly as much fabricated a CAI from scratch (there are no true kits) and fabbing a heatshield for it, and still be less efficient than the INTENSE FWI.
