Well after taking apart my front end and seeing the possible places for a CAI, I've decided to fabricate a Dinan Stlye CAI that sits in front of the front fender.
I have two questions. One: Any who has a Dinan or Benfer downpipe, did you have to remount the control module for the headlight? Without doing that it seems like there's no room for the 3" pipe that needs to come through. Re-mounting isn't that big of a deal, I'm just curious.
Two: I'm breaking it down into stages. Stage I is just the carbon fiber downpipe + K&N filter. Stage II is a possible Ram effect. I'm planning on removing the trim on the bumper, just underneath the fog light and creating a two-piece scoop that will surround the filter and sit in the well. My question: Is this worth it? Cost isn't an issue on this, nor is time. I just want to hear some opinions on whether or not the scoop will create a ram effect.
