While I do appreciate the great price point of this CAI and the good folks at BMS and N54, I am troubled by the design. The Injen and similar products design the CAI pointing towards the grill or at least not sit on top of the engine isn't that the point of a CAI? to pull the air from the front of the vehicle, this unit sits in the original air box, why couldn't you simply take off the top of your air box, like I used to do when I was a teenager. I realize there is little benefit in terms of HP etc, but that cooler air does benefit the engine to some degree and it sounds great as well.

I guess if its just sound, then why not the BMS, but I think I will go with a design that has some extension towards the front of the vehicle.
