how did you get an aem cai for $30?? and the splash guard is a great idea. i like the interior too, good work! did you remove the side trim before you painted it or kept it on?

Used masking tape on the side before paint the trim if you take your time it looks clean. The intake came from a car dealership I stopped at after buying my zx3. Stopped in to check a price on another focus that had the aem intake on it. The dealer was scared of hydrolocking the motor so he was turning it to stock before selling. The elbow and filter was shot and he didn't know what it was worth. I told him I'd pull it out and give him 30 bucks for it. He said sure bc he was just going to trash it.
