Foam is crap. More restrictive and prone to coming apart and headed down the intake.

Anyhow, yeah I've had headers and underhood temp measurements since November and the hottest its EVER gotten under my hood was 154* F...

Heat is definitely not an issue...
I wasn't talking about protecting the pipe, I was talking about rejecting heat for cold air purposes.

I appreciate the compliment. I love her, she's even got two names... "Black Betty" and "Carmen." (The TL is Carla) She was absolutely flawless until I backed over a concrete block after a party the other night. I think she's punishing me for juicing her.

well i made one from the kregon make your self intake and probly cost less than a weapon r intake. Mine total cost was about 100$$$ 2 90'' about $20, 1 6'' $10, 2 cuplers about $6 each, flex tubing $20, cone $25. If u moved the battery than its totaly different. mine goes around the battery in the stock loc. its good for people that want power but still keep the battery in the stock loc. heres some pics

I would use anything except flex tube though as it goes against every theory about getting good air flow. Use a fixed bend such as a silicone intercooler elbow

i didn't read all 6 pages. the the test i'd like to see. is air temp at the throttle body with CAI vs. SR. vs. stock.

also the CFM's at the throttle body for each of these.

well mine is so easy its like cooking a pizza. just un bolt the stock crap and take off the fender well piece to access to the big black thing that needs to go for the cone to go. than run the piping into the hole and tighten the clapon the filter on the flex tubing or intake tubes

yeah that will make cfms somewhat hard to tell. but you're a clever guy. i bet you can get TB temps.

however i have a question where is the MAF on the G1 legend? after you tell me i'll explain why. haha
