    I currently have a fenderwell cold air kit that I'm pretty happy with, but I plan on adding a 90mm MAF as soon as I get my 42# injectors. The cold air kit I have now doesn't have the same inside diameter as my 90mm MAF so when I bolt it up it's not going to flow as well as I want it to. Are there any companies that make fenderwell cold air kits that fix this problem. I've been looking around, but pics only help so much.

    I looked around for the same reasons and the Tunable Inductions was the best for our setup...

    www.demolet.com

    you want the one for Roots blowers and 90mm Flange option.

    I cut the flange off the LMAF, and got a coupler to hook to the intake before I got my powerpipe.

    DFG silly...you give them your paint code and they match it...It will never match the cars depth because its not a multi stage paint process like factory but it is close.

    The Lightning MAF that I have bolts right to my existing cold air intake, I just don't like the idea of having such a large MAF hooked to intake that has a much smaller diameter.

    IF your using a BBK, Mac, etc CAI that has the 90* bend before the MAF, DONT USE IT! it WILL throw off the readings on the maf and make the car run worse than it did before. Talking from experience. just run a filter off the front of the MAF, or put the maf Before the 90* bend. not after it.

    I've heard that before, that's why the car had the stock intake on it when I bought it. The previous owner said that he had a CAI on it before and it ran like crap with it so he took it off. My next days off I might take the fenderwell part off and put a k&n cone filter on the end of it to see if it runs better without the bend in it. Everything is worth a try i suppose, it really can't hurt.

    Well, even though I love the sound of my supercharger screaming out of the fender/bumper cover I think I'm better off keeping it all under the hood...
