    Finally finished this. It's far from perfect and I have some trimming to do but it seals nicely (there's a rubber gasket underneath). It's just 1/8" ABS plastic bent with a heat gun and cut appropriately. Not sure it will help a ton but should at least he equivalent to stick now with hopefully better airflow.[​IMG]

    I'm not sure it's professional enough to charge anyone for it, :) but I will say that so far it seems to work very well (as in as good as the stock box for heat rejection although I do have it lined with reflectix type material...not claiming any horsepower gains but it should flow pretty well.

    Honestly all I did was mock it up with cardboard then buy a piece of ABS off of Amazon. I traced out an outline - added a couple of inches and then used a dremel and a heat gun to get it "right". Well that and you have to buy a rubber gasket (maybe the one that comes with it would work?). I am eventually hoping to get an actual somewhat scientific test and compare it to stock and see if it helps (or at least doesn't hurt) IAT's.

    I have the LMS / Windstorm / Airaid CAI but I always liked the CAI that goes in the mustang, has a clear lid!
