cheers

Thermo's will help but you don't need them just to install CAI. Unless you have lots of mods and am pushing 180+rwkw, get yourself a EL XR8 snorkle and a good quality K&N, BMC, finerfilter or similar panel filter. That will give you plenty of flow.

i found that i hit the wall with the stock ed airbox at 155rwkw, it just couldn't suck enough air through the pissy little hole. Soon as we took the air box lid off it went to 173rwkw...

ef xr8, it wasn't the snorkel, its the hole in the actual airbox, where the snorkel connects. The hole isn't that big.

Now i've cut a hole in the metal underneath the airbox and run a pipe to the front of the car.... as well as the snorkel

all im sying is a snorkel from a later model car is designed around the (slimmer) thermos and this wont fit over the bulkier fan shroud.

yeh no point adding thermos purely for the sake of CAI, but it wouldnt hurt, and would make the engine bay look neater/cooler.. (esp if you've got both EL fans and snorkel there)
