Get the Roto Fab CAI with the Pro S Dry Filter. One of the few intakes that doesn't feed off of all the hot air.

because it sits in an enclosed box that sits in the engine bay.

you won't get the cooler air that the Legmaker Fender Pull will pull in.

let me show you where the Fender Pull intake sits, then you'll realize why it pulls in colder air than the Roto-Fab.

Litos i totally understand. For people that dont want a fender pull i would think something like the rotofab would be better than just having a filter hanging out in the open but then again i dont know

Sure seems like a lot of work when you want to clean or replace the filter.

Sorry Litos, just had to say it.

having a 50 degree cooler intake is what makes it worth it....

and it will be easy to replace the filter.....

Litos is grumpy and ill informed. The box actually seals to the leg fender pull location as well as a side pull near the steering reservoir. The roto fab actually brought back the tiny loss in power I felt after doing the reso delete.

Also leg fenders suffer from the length of tubing and the numerous bends the air takes causing a decrease in air flow. Someone that doesn't acknowledge that fact is pretty bias to me.

Plus good luck maintenancing that leg pull since any time you want to clean or service the filter you will have to pull the front apart.
