Well, the full length densecharger (plastic CAI) was very popular for a while, but if they dont' make it anymore, I don't think you will be able to get one, so you will most likely have to go with the metal type. Mac, BBK, or the Ebay knockoffs.

it's really not that big of a deal, but i'd prob go with plastic.

a friend with a 99+ stang had trouble fitting a demolet full length though, just a word of warning.

also watch out for demolet, the grommet is really big and thick, it sticks the throttle body, which could cause ur car to keep reving and possible move, if ur in gear, or got an auto.

happend to a few members of this site, and lots of other people.

99vert to name one.
