Go with the CAI(long one). The short one will suck in more hot air than your regular filter box unless you build a heat shield somehow.
I am sure the CAI will fit without any cutting of any kind.

david whats your max budget for a CAI or short intake? you realize you can built your own and make a head shield to go with it.
save yourself at least half the price.

I bought the long one and so far it has been good. There is no cutting of the wheel well. I wasn't to happy with them. It is a good intake but i have the sports edition and i had to take out the brake ducts and the tempture sensor. I remounted the temp sensor but there was nothinig i could do about the brake duct. Over all it was a good intake. Maybe i will post some pics up. I painted it all black to look stock. Also i would go with the longer one because i tried just hooking up the upper piece of the intake and it didn't sound as good as it did with the whole thing in.

if you know what angle to bend the pipes at, you can get some tube stock and have an exhuast shop bend it as you need to fit where you want it to fit. One thing I have noticed is that CAIs and ellipsoids dont really fit in that space. Once I actually get the propper HID kit back and install the whole set up, then I plan to make a custom heat sheild and have a custom pipe cut and bent to my specs.
