that setup may net colder air but in no way can it ram air into the intake.

you realise that you must go stupid speeds for those ramair setups to net anything more than cold air?

my CAI is just as good and looks waay better

btw, i had and SOLD Mikes ram-air setup.
Mikes setup also reduces your approach angle. i always scraped it when i backed into my garage. i love my CAI

You can do it for much less work than that. Use your factory snorkel and mount it on the bottom of your radiator support and get a piece of flexible tubing from Autozone for $20 and boom. Much better "ram air" than the factory setup. Essentially the same thing Mike does but uses the factory snorkel.
