That's just a "short ram" intake. To be a CAI technically it's supposed to go into the brake duct/ bumper.

so is it any good? I've never paid any attention to supposed CAI because I've always thought that they were crap for the money you have to pay for them. My next project was goning to be making a heat sheild for it, is that waste of time or still a good idea.

heat sheild would definetly be a good idea. It looksl ike it could suck quite a bit of hot air in like that. You might also build up a duct from the brake duct like I did, seen here.

So I just take like rubber or plastic tubeing and run it up and all the way around the conical filter? Like encase the filter in the tubeing? Loosly not touching the filter or anything like that. Or just run it up infront of the filter? But then most of the air is going to hit the end of the filter and be diverted around the filter part..

Just up to before the filter. If you have a heatsheild it will blow air up to acumulate around the filter.

Don't aim the feed pipe at the front, aim it at the side of the filter.

Feed pipes can be made out of lots of stuff. If you have a look at your local hardware store youmight find heating ducting (corrigated alloy look) in various diameters. This stuff is great because it resists the heat it's self and keeps the cool air cool.

Rubber hose will inevitably heat up in the engine bay and not be as efficient. The cost for both is about the same.

See http://www.bmw-forums.com/forum/topic15656.html and check out the extra vent hole in the front valance.

<span style='color:blue'>&quot;So my BM makes me a flash bastard? Then I guess you're just keeping it real from the seat of your nova?&quot;</span>

<span style='color:gray'>&quot;...and the home of the brave..... is bravey 130bhp from a 7 litre engine? 100bhp/litre or don't bother building it!&quot;</span>

<span style='color:red'>&quot;Aaahh the UK; where every road is jammed, under construction, poorly maintained and unfairly policed, at least we don't get over-taxed for it........ HA HA HA!&quot;</span>

So you are telling me to get a big drill....

So I get the metal heat ducts and run it up to the side of the filter by any means possible with the fewest bends in it to keep better/more consistent airflow and speed. How should I mount/support the duct? Any one have pics so I can start getting ideas?

Also just had an idea, Should I perhaps try to make the heat shield and duct one device ie. actually connected along the top of the duct? Or do I still want to have some of the front, or other side of the filter open to air not coming in from the duct?

Here's my piece of pvc in the brake duct. I cut out a slit in the top of it and epoxied the tube in place. however make sure you mount the pvc pipe far enough back so it doesn't contact the frame piece. I had to cut a section out of my tube because I didn't take this into consideration. Then I zip tied a piece of dryer ducting and ran it up to someday be used in the airbox.... if I can make that stupid final bend
