I noticed another restriction on the V. We put mine on the dyno and around 5200-5500 the stock elbow starts to vibrate really hard then starts to implode. I mean really starts to suck it self inward between the ripples and the air filter. Man I cant wait to get my Volant CAI in.

The StealthV FFV is your solution.....I'm going to order one of those and use it with my lingenfelter CAI...

Yeah but the bummer is that AFAIK, the FFV is out of production and will not be put back into production. I think that I will go the Volant path as there is no more FFV and they have a nice cross pipe.

Keep in mind that going with Volant's solution you use a plastic/glass pipe, otherwise you are using a metal pipe. Now then, anyone for an inverse intercooler? Tha's what you are doing in effect... the pipe gets hot due to ambient compartment air and it heats the cool flowing air as it passes by. Granted, it's not a significant amount at speed, but at slow travel, it is probably negating the benefit of the CAI.

Just some $.02 to think about.

At low speed the CAI doesn't matter - you're already getting all the O2 you want (or you would step on the throttle to get more)

At any speed, the Ua is so small that heat transfer through the metal conduit is negligible.

You can make your own FFV but Rick's set up fits up nicely. I'll be selling mine (less the K&N) next spring.
