i know that there performance is about the same and its a personal thing on what better, but with a 98 alty is one gonna fit better than the other so i don't have to worry about the ABS breaks being in the way?

Because the Place Racing wouldn't go in cause of my ABS unit (and I'm guessing the Hotshot would have the same problem) I'm rockin my homebrewed short ram intake. I might try turning it into a homebrewed CAI later in spring/summer.

im going to CAI to...
i thought about doing the JWT one because it was like 80$ cheaper, but then i realize that i don't really drive at high rpm's all the time and that is where the WAI performance is in. i drive more of the highway driving so i would want the gains to be there. what kind of intake do you have ckohl23 and did you have to cut anything at all to make it fit in your 98 cause of the ABS?

i feel the same way about wai vs. cai. unfortunately, i don't have an intake yet, but if i did i'd probably get the place racing CAI. i don't have ABS either so i won't have that problem.

Thanks goes out to the guys at SWA. I just got my HS CAI today got the box open and checked out all the goodies. This one impressivly made intake. On close inspection you can see great care was taken during the manufacturing process. Im probably gonna install it this weekend, if the weather warms a lil'. But im may just wait till the guys from Eastside get back from vaca. I wanna dyno the car stock and then with intake to see what the real gain in WHP is.

I'll keep you all posted.

sinkhole, don't be surprised if you got to run out and buy extra hardware. I've heard of people running out to buy new breather hoses cause the factory ones won't reach, or some of the fittings not the right size for the hoses. Make sure you have Loctite handy.
