Has two Mac brand CAI for 95GTs, bought one at local speed shop for around $200 and this one was already on the car. Happy with both. Noticed a slight difference. I've herd the cheaper ones work but the quality was lacking, chipped chrome and rust I think

I have a MAC CAI and I'm pleased with the fit and finish. It was installed by the first owner so I don't know what it cost.

You can't really go wrong with K&N.

It's pretty expensive though but the say with exhaust you can get up to 30hp

You're going to get so many answers But I will +1 on JLT. They are a small company, and make a fantastic product. And yes, as you can see huge filter. Jay Turner, who makes them is very active on another popular forum - would be tacky to say which, but he's not hard to find. I always like to support small businesses. They have more at stake and work hard. My .02... Get the JLT. Besides, the new carbon fiber one they make is gorgeous, and if you're worried about money you can get the earlier ones for cheap off guys on the forums. Just keep an eye on classifieds.

Actually you can go wrong with the k&n. I recently took my car to the dyno to find out that my cai was leaking. It wasn't cracked it anything, it was just releasing air pressure out the side. I'd suggest getting a cheap American muscle one and getting their mishimoto heat wrap and wrapping it up to keep the heat out and your cold air in.

Is that coming back across your motor or is it just sitting there?

The JLT is a good cai. It's just like every other one but goes down into the fender well where it actually gets cold air.

I was wondering that if it's in the engine bay how is it getting air?

Nope. It gets it's air from the fender. The right place. None of that warm engine bay air.

The factory ducts supply outside air towards the filter and the kits come with heat shields that help keep engine heat away from the filter but the best way to go is a CAI that has the filter located on the inside of the fender support, between the fender and support. Just watch out for high water!

American muscle has a kit for 84.99 inside the fender but I don't know what brand it is.

I was thinking that and high heat painting the wrap to give it an accent. I figure besides the filter they can't be much different because air just runs through them the same. But I know when you get up to the high dollar ones your going to get big differences
