I got a CAI which feeds down through the stock airbox hole and behind the bumper. When I first got it they sent me the wrong L shaped coupler, I had already attached the coupler to the throttle body as well as the pipe that comes off that. I also had the stock airbox already out, so instead of reattaching everything I just put the cone filter on the pipe coming off the throttle body, making it a short ram. A few days later I got the right coupler and installed everything correctly. After setting everything up, it actually seemed to make the sound and acceleration response lessen. I don't know if this is because of the extra distance the air has to travel or what it could be. So if that is the case could I just attach the cone filter directly to the throttle body making for way less distance the air would have to travel or would that be a bad idea? I'm mainly going for a deeper rumble sound with the extra throttle response as a nice added bonus. It's on a 2008 3.5, single exhaust with a Flowmaster Super 10 and reso delete.
