Looks pretty good. Will you eventually find something more durable than the plastic zip ties to secure it? The zip ties will weaken and break in a short period of time.

Yea i'm making a bracket fot it here shortly. Ill post pics up of the intake I made for a 05' Maxima and the intercooler piping for my Datona tomorrow

HA no problem man, and yea I had a short ram intake I had on for 2 yrs and I noticed that the hotter my car was the slower it got. So I was like screw this and just got a hair up my butt and decided to just make a CAI, cuz I didn't have the money to buy one off line or anything. I thought it turned out very well, and I noticed an immediat difference in the performance and gas milage, I was overly impressed lol. All the people that I have made one for really like it and noticed a difference from it. More pics will be posted later tonight.

Yes I did use the factory MAF housing for this, and thanks alot for the positive feed back. I made another one for a 07' focus during the week and she was very pleased with it. I supplied everything even the housing with a brand new MAF sensor.

Hella ghetto, but if it works, then why not right? What did it cost all together?

Nicely done... Makes it nice using the stock MAF tube, making a hole and trying to get the damn thing to fit on a round tube just aint worth the time and effort.....

what part of MA are you in? im in NOVA. how much would you charge to make one for an 08? after being on here, im getting a slight mod bug and want a CAI for my car and can't afford to go one. i also don't have any real tools to do work, i do have a 18v cordless.
