    If anyone actually wants a heat shield for their Ciotti CAI, you can get it from JLT for 20.00 out of their RAI kit. K&N told me to screw and buy the whole FIPK for 149.00 if i want the stupid heat shield!!

    this is a really clean set up.. i was thinking of trying to fabricate something to hold my k&n drop in filter onto the stock intake tube, but that's probably more work that its worth and not as reliable...

    probably a stupid question but is the 9" filter you reccomend here as part of the kit washable?

    It's definitely washable and any of the cleaning kits will work :)

    FYI; just called WMS, and they are having quality control issues with the manufacture of the rubber couplers (maf to tube, tube to TB) and so they are not selling any of the velocity tubes until they get the quality issues sorted out. I talked with 'Joel' and he indicated that the problem is with a supplier and they hope to have it sorted out soon as its affecting all of their products that have rubber couplers - no ETA. He indicated to call back in a few weeks.

    Joel also indicated he had one black powder coat tube in stock - I wonder how much diff teh ceramic coat vs the powder coat makes?

    EDIT: Just read this whole thread thru - has anyone been able to get a WMS velocity tube since mid-2007? I get the impression that WMS has had this supplier problem for a long time and simply hasnt dealt with it (?).

    The c&l pipe is much longer and you'll have to go with the 6" conical, but other than that it should work fine.

    If you look at the kit on C & L's site it looks to me to use the 9" filter not the 6". Anyone know for certain? :dw:

    So the issue with the C and L is that it goes too far forward so the air filter does not fit?
    What about running a 90 degree turn off the maf and go down into the fender well?

    ok this question could have already been answered but I have a JLT CAI and fitting it underneath the stock STB is definately out of the question. I have one installed on my 97 cobra and it's a coupe, to be honest I don't even miss the brace, didn't even feel like it madea difference. of course like I said mine's a coupe, on a vert i'm sure the difference is more apparant

    Do JLT's not fit under strut tower braces on ALL Mustangs or just a few model years? On their website the 94/94 intake set up is shown w/ the stock strut tower brace.

    I think I was one of the last ones to get a WMS. I got a good deal on the "left over parts that they could put together for me"

    He sold me a ceramic coated tube that he said was dented (the dent was on the bottom of the tube and I actually had to look close for it anyway)
    They also said the rubber couplings had pinholes in them and the one I got looks fine with a little tire dressing on it.

    They are really nice on the phone and the stuff arrives quickly.
