      Buy a eBay 1.8T CAI. The piping fits.

      i have a 1.8t cai laying around but id have to remove the windshield washer tank just to run it but i want to keep it in the bay as i use it (we have ALOT of dump trucks go up and down 95 so they put alot of trash on the roads plus other construction crap)..i could use the coupling maybe as its perfect for the maf and just get 3" piping as that what the cai size is...
