There are pipes out the for GM V-6 without having to put rice parts on! My MAF screen has been pulled for a year and no problems. You will not notice a big change, but some! The next step would be a 180 stat and cooler plugs and wires! This will help you gain some Horses! My CAI was designed just for my car, and it is allot shorter than yours? The main problem with the Bonne is that the radiator restricts allot of air flow, so you don't gain a ton! If you will build a shroud for this to collect more air ,you will notice a greater change. It looks like it will be a little harder for you though, because the pipe is almost to long. You can direct air from under your front bumper with a 4-5" hose ( like on a dryer vent) and then you have to make a surround for the filter and the air will direct into it. There are a few people in BC that have done a good job doing this. I am working on doing this now!

Where is the Link to buy parts that cost under 150$? There is something to be said about customizing your own intake though. I got plugs, wires and stats all sitting on my desk waiting to be installed. Who designed your CAI? Most people make their own here which is what I plan on doing this summer. As far as the pipe being to long, I disagree with that one. Guys such as Willwren and Jason use the same length of pipe, got to remember the engine heat is a killer on a shorter pipe, which was the problem I was having before with the PVC intake.

I'll have to check on what brand mine is, but I found a few on ebay, They were recomended for 4 GM cars including Bonneville. It cost me $75 w/ lifetime filter! and note I'm not dis'n what you all are do'n, just maken sure your getn the gain you want! I;ll post what brand and if they have a site in a bit. Peace! My CIA is about 4" shorter, but that does not mean it is any better for this application than the rice pipe! Maybe we should run a pole and find out!

I bought a ebay intake before but the rubber coupler to fit over the TB was to rigid and the pipe was way to short, my filter would be sizzling after a little while driving. If you dont mind, I will get a pic of your setup off cardomain and one of mine then take a poll. I know you mean good, dont sweat it bro.

You want the fillter as far forward as possible, It'* fed well normally, but cooling it off with ducting is a better way for sure.

I'd clamp that pipe to the TB twister, it looks like you just set it in the stock accordian tube.

Its not in the stock tube. The pipe ends just past the middle of the clamp, where it evens out. Or did you mean actually putting the pipe in the TB? I can not move the clamp around that much because of the engine setup with that "black box" to one side. I did install a ram air today, similar to Silverbullet'* setup, it is pretty sweet.
