I have a Short Ram style intake, installed by previous owner. I am finally going to get arond to fixing it while I am home on x-mas break. I have a lead on some aluminum for the heat shield, friend of mine is going to hook me up with some he has, then rubber weather striping on the top so it will "seal" with the hood when closed. One of my question is how far down do I want the shield to go? I am also going to get some of the dryer duct or perhaps plastic round french drain style gutter material and run it from behind the fog light up to the cone air filter. If that stuff comes in different diameters shoul I just get the biggest diameter that would fit? Any one know what that is? My other question, does the duct material just need to come up to the bottom of the filter? Should I run it up infront of the filter or directly beneth? And how far away should I make the end of the duct from the filter to get most air flow into the intake?

Thanks for your help, I'll try and remeber to have my camera with me to take step by step pics, but if not yall will at least get to see the final product.

Great idea would be to go to maybe www.turnermotorsports.com and look at the Jim C. CAI and shield and see the demensions of it and model it after that...

Good Luck,

Les
