There are several here that have made their own CAIs and I would just use the search function to see how they did it. I have always bought mine but of course modified them slightly in a few cases from what I learned here. I combined a Volant and an Airaide Jr on my truck and I also added a ram air down tube, along with sanding it all down and painted it to match the truck.

Good luck.

It's a great idea if you are looking to save money. Take some fernco couplers and run 3" black abs plastic pipe to the factory airbox. Probably the best and cheapest option for you in my opinion...then purchase a drop in filter.
