Word. You bring a valid point, I don't want to show mine either I suppose since I still haven't fixed it from a fender bender and don't plan on it... do you mind posting pics of where you zip tied it? I'm trying to get this mass airflow tube from a 96 taurus sometime next week... hoping for the best and that it fits. Needless to say I can't stop popping the hood and thinking about where it might go and how I'd think about running a CAI. Only thing I can't figure out is how to mount it. I'm kinda thinking about it come out like this one http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=200566 but I can't see how he mounts the darn thing!!! Or (not to discredit you) where and how yours finishes, does it just go straight down?? All help would be greatly appreciated! Just so antsy and can't wait to get these parts in! I'll try and do a write up of the whole thing.

Honestly, I'm 300 miles from my Focus and am on a work trip and am driving a rental. I can snap a pic of mine and show you how I routed my zip ties. However, I went the SRI route, I didn't make the down tube. Too many puddles around, especially during the spring thaw, so to be safe I stuck with the SRI.

My reason for going the "homemade" route was pretty freakin easy. The Steeda SRI would've cost me over $300, but my homemade one cost me less than $40 :)

Cool cool, thanks man. Guess I'll just start with the short ram and maybe buy a tube at a time until I'm happy with it. I couldn't agree more with you on the budget though! Why pay extra when it does the same thing. I'll take pics and post it once I'm done in a few weeks.

I did the exact same thing, this what I bought:

http://www.spectreperformance.com/in...apter-kit.html

and

http://www.spectreperformance.com/in...tall-blue.html

it works great and sound good, the only thing I want to do is some kind of metal plate/sheet between the filter and the maf to keep the air cool.

I bought some piping from spectre and made a cai I didn't had fog light so I got the driver side fog light bezel and all the air would pass directly to the cai
