I think there is only a couple CAI for the 5.0 that require you to have ether a auto or standard. But the rest don't matter. And can it be modified to work for an auto?

I forget what it is for, but the auto has an extra tube that runs to the cai. So 3 total. Sound tube, PCV tube and auto has one more.

nope, they are different tubes. You can make the auto work for the manual easily by plugging the hole but not really vice versa. I do believe steeda sells just the tube if that is what you need. You can swap the manual for an auto.

might find it on ebay or something. I am not sure though, since your trying to do the harder swap. Probably easier to find manual tubes than autos, but worth a shot. Gonna bet it is gonna be around 80 bucks from steeda.

Yeah thanks for your guys help. Ill look it too that even with the 80 it would still be cheaper then to buy a brand new one. I'm not to big on CAI but I want to experience this for my self and see if it is worth it.

The extra hose on the autos runs to the one way check valve coming off the brake booster. The manual cars have the one way check valve in a different spot. You cannot just disconnect the hose on the autos as it will affect braking.

Steeda has the BEST looking CAI I think, here is mine. Also it utilizes the ram air duct behind the grill and I think there is another brand that does not ?

I agree that Steeda makes the best looking and performing CAI on the market. My C&L CAI utilizes the duct as well in their shroud.

Only when the throttle is a certain bit open, like 20% or something, at cruise or wot there is no whistle as well as most places in between
