Did you cut both end of the injen? how did you cut from the left side of the intake? you just repaint it w/ red right. can I see the pix of the heat shield that you made and the side wall of the intake thank you again.OM3GA said:I cut my injen CAI into RAI, it definitely better for me, cause I put an HKS SMF filter on it instead of the one supplied!
