i know this topic has been coverd various times, and i read all of them, but i still have a doubt. If you were to use just the first half of the CAI and add the filter cone to it making it a short ram would it fit inside the engine bay or would it hit against the side walls. I would apreciate it if anybody how has done this before could help me out with this dumb question. I dont want to go buy one and then find out it doenst fit.

The Injen CAI has both, so you can convert it to SR or CAI. I heard it has a good sound and minimal power gains. I'd recommend that if you want both.

Yes, it fits. You know how big the stock airbox is? That's where the paper cone filter will go.

Every body i apreciate the help i am thinking of buying he injen CAI, but let me ask you something else, what do you guys think about the weapon R? I have herd of metal savings flowing inside the engine form the tubing and causding internal damage to the piston rings. Dont know if any of this is true.

Don't forget the fact that after Toyota did an investigation and determined that the Weapon-R intake had destroyed that guy's engine, Weapon-R refused to pay for the repairs.

so we are back to the point where we say, " the mfg only warranties the part, not your engine."
and yes, i have seen first hand the metal shavings inside the weapon r intake. and the owner of that car removed the intake post-haste.
