Default Check out my Custom CAI for my 99RS.... pics and vid!

Hi guys, my friend who does a lot of cool fabricating and custom building made me a custom CAI. It only cost like half of what "brand" name CAI systems cost, and is a great system, he truely does great work. (pm me if you want his info). Anyway check it out, here are some pictures and a short clip of the sound. I dont have an exhaust so all you are hearing is the intake noise.

Thanks!

Just a FYI, it isn't a CAI (Cold Air Intake) unless you can isolate the hot air from the engine from the air intake area.

In any case, it looks pretty good.

Must be nice to have a friend who can fabricate stuff for you. Careful that you MAF doesn't die on you as the MY99 MAF's have a tendency to die on cars with an aftermarket intake on them.

LaterZ!
Darren!!

It is very important to mount the MAF sensor to something sturdy so it does not bounce around while going over bumps, hard stops and accelerations. This will keep it alive and running well.

Besides that, look nice.

Cheers,
Bill

I'm a MAP guy, but I gotta throw this in: Sweet that it holds the MAF perfectly! Safe to assume aluminum? And what's the brand on that filter?

It helped having a Kartboy part.....it actually was in the trunk when I bought tha car This uses the MAF bolts on one end and then the filter fits over the other end. And yes, the bracket is aluminum

ummm, I actually feel kinda embarrased to say this, but I don't know where I got it from, except that when I bought the car, it was already in.....lol. If you really need to know, I could contact the previous owner to find out, but other than that, I really don't know dude.....sorry :-(

Here is my opinion of it though---it is enourmously large.....lol. It reminds me of when I am a mechanic at the chevy dealer, this is like the size radiator i see for a V8 or something of the like. But anyways, it sure does a good job of cooling from what I can tell, but I have nothing to compare it to since it was on the car when I bought it. I would only suggest getting it if your factory radiator is going bad or something of the like, but otherwise I would think your factory radiator is good :-)
