Any reason to not just buy the Afe Stage 2 si (or even the elite version), the one that comes with the cover?

Is it because the single cone is more restrictive?

I was a little worried that is why i thrashed the car around the track the other day, there are no marks on the inside of the rims so will be fine. there is around 3mm of clearance so all good

We know this system makes the most power of any inlet system, but i want a top for it with a new cold air inlet.
This is how the step 1 proto looks so far, it takes about 4 steps and many hours before its complete. it will be a fiberglass cover
And your sidekick call's my work Ghetto. but it looks good Peter. Just leave it as is. You'll get plenty of customers for that intake. What price are we talking $5.99?

For the production version, can we use thick paper as opposed to cardboard and scotch tape as opposed to gaff tape. This will give us a much better weight advantage
